Dog in Oils – Blocking In Stage of Oliver

dog oils progress

Yesterday I continued to work in Oliver’s oil portrait. I blocked in the entire canvas with paint. At first I toned the entire canvas with a thin premixed yellow color. Lately I have been doing this because I want all colors I add at a later stage to mix with it, tt’s easier to create color harmony this way. I will now leave the painting to dry a bit before I continue with my work. This stage look a bit flat and dark, however is a great base.
