    custom monochromatic oil dog portrait painting work in progress' class=
    I finished up the background lastnight for this monochromatic portrait of Tess (follow the progress here). My palette for this piece is pretty simple – raw umber, indigo (raw those two mixed are the darkest dark), white, naples yellow and raw sienna. I chose this palette because her mom wanted something that would bring out her natural coat color even though it’s a limited palette, and this is going to be just perfect.

    I’ll start showing completed pieces by the end of the day Monday. It’s been a busy week – I’m going to go play in my garden for a while!
