I have started a commission of one of my favourite subjects. This painting will be 11 x 14". So far I have it drawn out and I have started the first washes. The fur has wonderful bluish highlights that will be fun to paint. I haven't decided whether to leave the background a greyish colour or change it later. I'll see what it looks like as it progresses. The highlights in the eyes are still covered by masking so they are still dull looking. I'll take that off in the next couple of steps and the eyes will come to life.
