Rae Place

This is looking close to being done

Rae Place

I've stared to paint some living things in, plants so far

Ray Place in Woolloomooloo, the ground and a bit more

I'm starting a couple of Woolloomooloo landscapes. This is a start on a view from McElhone St looking at the cliff embankment Brougham St is on top of. 

I might  do a bit more to this later today, though the light is much different, high cloud has flattened it out and obliterated shadows

Finished or thereabouts. The lighting on the dog coming from a different direction than the background but it doesn't seem to matter too much

Just some highlights to do - bit of light on fur and leaves

Cassie the Giant Schnauzer - I just have to paint her fur the right colour

It's time to start painting in the real colours

 With the background starting to emerge, in negative!

 Beginning of a portrait of Cassie, a giant schnauzer. 

The first bit of painting with some Port Macquarie park and beach photos to muck around with the horizon without actually painting it in yet

When I first got some photos of Cassie I did this drawing This is probably the pose I'll use. She's a big dog with lots of black curls that are a bit hard to make out in photography so I'll work a bit more at drawing before I make a start on the painting. For now I'll keep putting updates in this post
