Some paintings take forever BUT
it's worth it
"It is nought good a slepyng hound to wake "
oil on wood and resin
It's taken several months to finally finish this little still life painting. You can see how it started out here. Doing the sketchbook didn't take too long, and the dog wasn't too bad, but getting the sense of carved wood was a joyful challenge. Had to make sure the paint was thoroughly dry before pouring epoxy resin (how to here) on it.
