Something seemed to have “bit” me while trying to finish this Memory Portrait of Skjonn. It has been a struggle and I am not sure why. Is it her fun loving spirit and fear that I could not capture it? Or was it the color combination of being a black Labrador with both brown and blue highlights? What are your thoughts?
Anyway, it feels like I am very close to the finish line. The orange highlights were applided to help convey her wonderful personality. Are they too obvious or too bright? Then I kept some of the royal blues for the same reason. Her hooded eyes look good and I was pleased that I was able to convey the cast shadow over her right (photo’s left) eye. Perhaps some of my trepidation was purely the ‘learning opportunity’ that Skjonn presented…? I do wonder if she yet approves of her portrait! LOL!
