Jack Russel - Day 6

I wasn’t sure I’d finish this guy.  Besides the drawing challenges of the foreshortened forelegs, I started on a green tinted canvas as an experiment (I thought maybe the green would be nice with the oranges). BIG MISTAKE!  The whole thing looked putrid until I got rid of all the green!  When I put that pale blue background on (did it before the dog, even), it was like relieving an itch!  I played with colors on my palette and got the oranges, blues and mauves.  Once I had the basic colors blocked in, the rest came together.  Phew!
