Pastoral, Early Stages
This is going to be a 24x30, which is just about as big a painting as I can comfortably do in my tiny studio. Once upon a time I did a lot of animal paintings, wildlife, dog and cat portraits, even a bull once, but that was in a much more traditional style, so this is both a trip in the way back machine, and a stretch outside of my comfort zone. I'm on day three of building the relief image, and then I have to give it time to dry completely before I start to glaze. It's a process.
