Work in progress photos of Milo & Charlie

It has been very busy in the studio, consequently I have not posted recently.  The surprise commission is now finished and being mounted as I type.  Meanwhile, I have been making the most of this glorious weather, and moved my studio outside! This painting will be of Milo and Charlie, two beautiful labradors.  These are the first "work in progress photos" minus the greenfly!

First layer of watercolour to establish light and shade

First glaze on the eyes

Adding shaping to their noses

Gradually strengthening Milo's colouring
