Thirty in 30, day 13, "First Love"

Another progression for you. I don't know what I was thinking starting with a green base? It was awful coming out of it and hence I overworked the entire piece. I was thinking the green background would cast a green light on the entire subject, it just made it muddy. Next time I'll drop green into the flesh tone so to keep it all bright and clean. Lesson learned. I also found out something I can't paint, DOGS. Oh my, but I think I can paint a wolf ;) this is a scary looking little puppy I painted. Maybe that should be my next challenge, painting animals. I've never been very good at it, so it would be a challenge and an opportunity to learn...we'll see. Until tomorrow, have a good one :)
