Karelian bear dog

As I mentioned yesterday I was really not satisfied with the background. So I have altered it into a more soft and less chaotic one. I might have to apply more layers, but I like it better already.

Worked a bit more on the dog.
I am starting to think, that I'll change the background, making it much less grassy and just in green values.

Karelian bear dog

Here is an update, you can see the square format 30x30 cm, and just how much fur I still need to paint.

Karelian bear dog

An update on the karelian beardog. I am still alternating between media. No area is definitly completed.
You can clearly see the way I work area by area. You'll see different artist' working in different manners, some working all over by each layering, others like me, find it easier to work like this - at least in this media-mix.

Karelian beardog

Right now I am working on a mixed media painting - a headportrait with background - of a karelian bear dog. The materials used are ink, colored pencil, watersoluble cp's and acrylics. Here is a shot of my drawing table in the process.

Show picture

I didn't get many shots at the opening night at my unions art-associationshow, but here are 3 framed of my 5 drawings/paintings.
I feel very comfortable being part of this - my first ever - artassociationshow.

I had some very nice comments on my work. All shown here.
The show hangs for 2 months, I am thrilled if anything sells. I found the pricing very difficult. Almost all of the other paintings are abstract art, not so comparable in pricing. Looking at the list of artwork, mine are priced in the upper half.

New blog

I have started a new blog presenting pattern-designs. Take a look if you like. Patterndesign by Lene. I am sure animals will be a part of most of my designs.
