Getting the feel for an upcoming commission. Animals have many issues to consider in their physical make-up, such as placement of the eyes, shape of the eyes, length of nose and shape and placement of the ears, shape of the skull (check out the differences the next time you are around several dogs at once) to name a few. Color is a biggie on this one. Every photo I have - shows a slightly different hue. Nicki passed away last May..so photos are all we have. I think I am ready for a different pose - several to select from and a more complete portrait. By the way, if you haven't seen "Dogs Decoded" on NOVA on PBS, you must see it. It is so fascinating!
