I never thought I would have so many paintings going at one time. I like the idea, though, of going back and forth between several. Long way to go on this one and so wrong to think this would be easy. Black is such a huge challenge. There are so many subtleties of light and color especially in animals. This one isn't a true black...more of a bluish, reddish brown.....very complicated.
I also started "Petal Pusher" but it just looks creepy now, so I will work on it a bit more before I post it..
