"Bugs"


Here's the latest "hot off the easel"!!! Casein, 3"x2". This post should be about the correct actual size for you. I have such a hard time with titles...

Just beautiful Carol, that eye is wonderful and all that hair! My favourite bit to do! Best of luck at the Elder Street Gallery, lovely work as always.I'm very behind with everyones blogs but just wanted to pop in and say great work!

Thanks Italo and Tracy. Personally I was happiest with the ears- Italo, the fur is easy to paint! Getting that soft short, "nearly-not-there" stuff was a challenge! Tracy- the eyes are my "dessert"- I paint them in last (some folks call my WIP's ghosts!) I save the best for last- bringing them alive. :-)

So dainty and gorgeous, a real gem and I love it Carol!!!

Thanks Karen. I have to admit, this is one of my favorites. I plan to just let him cure and then buff him rather than varnish- caseins are nice that way- you have a choice.

Thanks Natalie- I enjoy your blog too- I'm gonna be trying that BBQ sauce for sure! I LOVE to cook! And I love BBQ, and that one looked like a "zinger"!

Italo said...

ahahahahah Dear Carol, it's funny how you say: it's easy to paint the fur!!! It's like when I said to my friend: Czech language is so easy to speak :D You are great.
