First I started with a drawing, trying to figure out where everything should go. I prefer using a light coloured pencil crayon because I can find my way without it causing too much of a problem until I get it right.
I ran out of light coloured pencil crayon, so I used a brownish colour. I don't like using it as much and I think it shows in the finished painting somehow... not the lines, but my feeling about the underdrawing.
I have since taken out my signature. I think it's distracting. 18" by 24" Finn # 1 and Finn # 2
I started a Finn #3 but I don't like it as much as I like these two. Finn is the perfect subject matter for me.
