More practice from my class. We work from photos that are offered for use on UNSPLASH. Sometimes they are zoomed in, sometimes they are flipped, whatever is needed for the lesson.
On a roll, found some time to do a commission portrait of a doggy. Also re-sided and painted our solar/chicken coop shed. It was left with the wire grid on it for stuccoing, but we wanted to side it with T-111 like the house is. It was an eyesore, but NOT ANY MORE! My painting ARM and shoulder are working overtime. Fighting to keep them healthy right now.

and here is the final, the color sure didn't read right on these previous photos from my iPhone.
I had to Photoshop the color on the final to make it look like it really DOES.
