Sandy, this bun really came out nice.
My only suggestion would be to make the mustard more a haphard pattern rather than a zig-zag. The geometric pattern in an otherwise curvy, organic composition seems a bit at odds with the rest of the lovely painting.
I'm headed for lunch now. I'm suddenly hungry!

Hiya, Sandy! Glad to see you continuing with the alphabet series. I think the frank and bun are very well done. If the mustard lines were just very slightly curved, they would add that third dimension by showing that they go around the frank.

Very good color and value on this one.

Nice buns (heh heh). This looks like it was a lot of fun to do.
Good job.

'Frankly' my dear...everyone has hit the mark with their comments. It's the mustard's line, contour, that needs some adjustment. "Follow the form" of the dog and this will be a good painting. The bun is done exceptionally well.

How's the barn/garden...version 1 or 2? :D Look how well you do from life! Our class project involves so much more invention...that's hard compared to this isn't it?
