I may post another later today. I have 4 paintings lined up for commissions so I need to work on those also today. Just wanted to keep you up to date on the process. The front Black Lab is taking over center stage so to speak. He is the foreground. I'll be working more on his face. The right side as you look straight on is in shadow so I really want to accent the left. My plan is to make his flopping ears "active", giving them the motion he is experiencing. We'll see.
