This is the latest assignment from the DSFDF . The blog was set up by Karin Jurick with a distinct purpose for each photograph posted. The challenge this time around was to "get the human figure right." Good drawing is a must, but what I learned from Kim English in a recent workshop was to block in the shape of the figure early in the painting and continue to work the figure and the background at the same time. I thought the painting needed something in the foreground, so...I added Dooley from a photo when he was a puppy.
