For two more days I have been working on the oil portrait of dog Sadie. I’ve now blocked in the entire canvas with the first and second layer of paint, simply preparing for the next.

The base for the background is completed and next time I will be able to lighten up and darken some areas. I will now leave the painting to dry over the weekend and continue painting on Monday. I took some photos while painting at my easel, view them below.
