I'm currently working on a very large painting of two boxers. The photo is fantastic and shows one dog standing over the second. They are both on a round cushion, therefore the title. I always start with a charcoal sketch and then paint over it. It seems to help me with the values. And after many months of on-again, off-again painting, I'm finally finished. Hello Boop and Beau, the two boxers with oodles of personality.
