How is the hair looking? I need some feedback so I can continue. Have to work on the carpet and the plaid couch next. The new pic was taken at night so the difference in color. Will take a new pic in tomorrow for daylight.

Oh Tess they're beautiful. Boy wish I could learn to do hair like that. Going to copy and paste your message and save it so I can read it over and over until I get it right *S* THANKS Oh Yep looks like a Silky But need to see more of her face *S*

Dear Luvy,

I haven't ever seen her face and I've had her for about three years now. All I've ever seen is her tiny beady eyes and that black dot nose. She is very small as well. Her tags are almost as big as her face! :D

She is about 8" tall and about 16" long (not counting the tail). When I get ready to paint a portrait of her I'll get some better images. But she is really very independent and doesn't like to be bothered much about anything.

Thanks for your compliments and I'll be watching this one. Hair is really easy to do, don't worry about it. Looks good so far!

Sincerely,
Tess

Thanks Jerry Gollator and Tess. I'm dreading this plaid. I've not done anything like plaid before. (crossing fingers) Hope I don't mess it all up.

Tess The way you describe her. She's a silky. Very independent, very protective. He's probabably the weirdest dog I've ever owned. But I still love him *S* LOL He has many weird personality traits not real desireable. He's about 12 lbs. My daughter has a female silky. I painted her a few months ago. She's about a year old and her hair is darker than Jacks and not as long. Plus she is way smaller than Jack.

I am having so much trouble doing this plaid on the couch. Any secrets? I started it but luckily the underpaint was almost dry and I could wipe it back off again. Should I just fake it and not do the plaid and go with a solid color? HELPPPPPPP!! Decisions decisions.

Chuck I like doing these dogs *S* They are easy to please *S* HEE HEE

Now these colors are more true I just took the picture this morning.

Need to work on the carpet and this plaid couch.

Dear Luvy,

I had to go back and look at the plaid in the photo. When I look at it I only see the light and very subdued dark colors (almost not visible). I don't see that red (sienna?) color where the plaid is going in but only a much darker raw umber color. For me, I sometimes have to stop looking at the entire picture and focus only on the part I'm painting. I go with the very darkest colors first then progress up to the lightest.

I'm not sure on how you are having trouble painting the plaid. Is it placement? or colors? Is this still your underpainting process or is this the second layer?

Tess
