Day 2 - Face the Public

with Alison O'Donoghue.

The beginnings with a black underpainting.

Next...adding the color.

Applying detail...sorry Alison, we gave you a complicated area to paint.

"Commercial Break" to meet Meg, our sweet little rescue dog from the animal shelter.

She's adapting to coming into the gallery.

Back to Alison. More painterly details which distinguish her unique style.

Removing the masking tape.

Our two finished squares.
