Roxie's New Portrait
Painting - Acrylic & Oil Pastel On Canvas
I just can't help myself...Roxie's former portrait was bugging me. It was TOO "cartoony" for my taste and usual style. So I tweaked it...a lot! It is much darker now with more depth and shadows. The eyes have more color. I added layers of glaze and gold watercolor too soon after each other and it "pushed" the gold around and gave it this wonderful texture! So, I discovered another method to add to my work simply by accident.....thanks to Roxie. She is such a sweet little thing. And she has learned to "twirl" (turn in a circle on her hind feet) like a dancer! And to think she was unwanted and found under a piece of cardboard only a year ago....
