may 25, Pucker-Up-Pup

Just because she looks like she's about to jump up and slam a smooch on ya!  These kinda coats just thrill me to paint, because you KNOW that's a beige-y, tan-y, taupe-y coat, and actually getting that color to show up is such a challenge!  The shadows hold that cooler violet flush, and the starkness of the sunlight on the lit side has to contrast accordingly~  really, such fun!  It's when I have to slow down and really focus that I can pay more attention to what I'm doing.  Sometimes when I get into a good painting rhythm I paint almost automatically, and it is good to jar myself somehow, twitch myself back into my body so I am more present.
Does that make any sense?
