Fancy Feet 6" x 6" oil on gessoboard
I usually take a photo of the finished painting in a hall that has a high window. The ambient, natural light usually gives the true colors of the painting. Today was rainy and overcast. It was more of a struggle to take the photo than paint this fancy fella. The glare washed out some of the more delicate areas of the painting. If tomorrow is a nicer day, I will try to photograph it again. Really, the painting looks much nicer. Really.
Everytime I looked at this fella's "feet", it reminded me of a Clydesdale. (It's just the way I think.)
