I was going to have more done on the papier-mache faced Santa for you tonight,
then I realized that oh-my-goodness-it's-December-4th-
This is for a sweet lady in England ~ for her friends, actually ~ Ellie the Springer Spaniel's
humans. I've had Ellie's photos for quite some time, but as long as it was still November,
I thought I had LOTS of time...;^)
This is how I am.
Three years ago I did several ornaments for her to give to her kitty-friends
with their furbabies' portraits...
It's always a supreme compliment to have repeat customers!
I did a quick Sharpie-sketch of Ellie, then repeated it on the ornament using a small
liner brush and thinned acrylic. You wouldn't think it,
but getting the outline on a rounded surface is tricky!
Blocking in Ellie's main colors with acrylic...
Adding a little more white...I see my earlier white paint is taking on a pinkish cast!
I'll fix that with a little sealer if the next coat doesn't do the trick...
Check back tomorrow ~ hopefully Ellie will be finished!
Wednesday already...yikes, where is this month going??
Remember when it took f-o-r-e-v-e-r for Christmas to come??
