Maggie - finished

Multi-media
















I put a new background on the owls today and started my painting of a mouse...all in the grand design for my Christmas card...after using the watercolor I decided to start highlighting with my beloved pastels...and I may finish the owls with them. Interesting....

Watercolor pencils!














Some time ago I purchased some watercolor pencils; they intriqued me and I wanted to try them. I am not happy with my pastel of the owls....so I decided to try the watercolor pencils...I didn't get far this morning but I am really liking them!

More time with Maggie...

Maggie and her duck













In a few spare moments this morning I did a little more on Maggie's painting, started putting in her toy duck...I'll be enlarging that duck a little, it's too small....just a little progress until later...

In the studio today...
















I was "scattered" today, mingled between a lot of projects, some of which I cannot publish because at this time of year I work on Christmas commissions and some are for people who may see this blog....so those paintings remain hidden for awhile. My owl Christmas card painting I almost gave up on; I had worked it to death but in the end decided to just crop it instead of restarting.
The dog is Maggie...the beginning of a very cute dog's portrait for a very special Christmas gift.
