Snowball ~~ Kimberly Kelly Santini



 

The pressure was on. After Monday's "Ready for Her Closeup" and yesterday's "Well, Hello, Gorgeous," I felt the pressure when planning today's painting.
 

And it wasn't easy, but any means. This little lady gave me a run for my money.
 

I'm still not 100% thrilled with the results, but this was a lot to tackle in one day. High key, a nearly impossible angle, and lots of motion. Not to mention, the painting was substantially larger than those I typically try to complete in one sitting.

 
The above is detail of "Snowball," a 9" x 12" portrait of a Golden Retriever (it's a detail because my scanner is 8" x 11-1/2", so there is just a fringe of margin eliminated). The painting was done in Golden Open Acrylics on Ampersand Gessobord, and will be available for purchase after I make a few more adjustments and tweaks. Email me if you are interested in purchasing Miss Snowball.

 
Thanks, as always, for looking at and sharing my artwork,
Kim
