Oscar, Bella, and Odie WIP

"Oscar, Bella, and Odie"
Oil on Canvas Panel

I hope you will forgive the glaring photo. It is 11:00 pm and I just decided to take a progress photo to send off to the person who is commissioning this painting. This is the first commission for Christmas this year. I have not done three dogs in one painting before this...and we decided on just the head shots. Oscar, the one in the middle who is mostly painted, is gone now, sadly.  Bella is the next addition on the left. And then Odie came along on the right. They are all rescue dogs much loved by the owners. It may take me a while on this one...and I am hoping the background, when I get to it, will be subtle and the dogs will still pop. 

Long way to go...just thought I'd let you know I am still at the easel.  Stay tuned...

Thanks to both of you...I am taking this one slowly for some reason. I think the big challenge is going to be the background and I don't want to get to that until I have the rest finished. Don't ask. I have no idea what I am doing.
