Pet Project #12: Step 1

I decided that another underpainting of vivid green would help as I painted this beauty. The colors in this animal are amazing: oranges with brown and yellow, black that is blue-black, purple-black or olive green-black and all the wonderful browns. Stay tuned!

Artist Note: Often with these step-by-step paintings, I photograph the stages and I know the finished painting works because I have it done before I publish the steps. I like to paint all in one session. I find that day-to-day, mood-to-mood, I "see'" and therefore paint different colors even with the same reference. Tonight, my light is failing and I can't continue this so we will all see whether this painting makes it, as it is evolving in real time.
