I am calling this little painting "Thankful". Especially thankful that the earthquake last night was only a 3.9 - centered only 10 miles from my home. I sure felt it!
I really spent time on the drawing of this one, the big shapes, and decided it was worth putting some paint on. This was a model I used ages ago for my teaching class that I had a picture of.
Without a good clean shape, a drawing is lost. The angle of the head/eyes looking up was something that was key to the whole feel of the thing. I spent time catching that.
