I struggled with this cute little pig yesterday. I don't mind struggling over a painting. however, I like to understand why something isn't working. Let;s start with the eyes. I usually like very realistic eyes but they didn't work in this little pig, so I left the little button eyes, though this was after several repainting. The colors: pinks are always a challenge for me and I had to have a "cool" to set back the left side of the face and a "warm" to round the advancing parts of the pig. I finally settled on glazing a purple mix and a light yellow over the underpainting. I also glazed a thin white over the background to add more light. Maybe all of my struggles were with the high key and limited value range of this little guy. happy 4th!!
