This watercolor is also on 140 lb Fabriano SP and is about 18" X 18" but I will crop it to the same size as the first in the series, 17" X 17" to be framed to 25" X 25".
I am progressing slowly on this one." I have had my son and my daughter over for the long weekend, I had several appointments etc...And...it's not an easy painting:-) The eye on the right-hand side is extremely important since it really becomes the focus of the painting...I have tried really hard to get it right. The other eye is currently just sketched in. While "Angus" was very whimsical, this "Pierre" has to look almost like a real person hiding behind the leaves.
I am not sure I like the colors so far: the top is very dark and subdued...This photo was taken with a flash, so the colors are not very accurate. If I don't like the final version, I could always redo it - I have taken several photos of "Pierre" from several angles:-)
What do you think?
