This is my latest painting, Hippo. I was going to do him on a 12x16 canvas, but after sketching it out, it just wasn't working for me. I then decided on an 8x10 - much better.
I kept my palette to burnt sienna, ultramarine blue, cerulean blue, Indian red, titanium white, phthalo green, and just a bit of paynes gray for his eye. This was one of those paintings that just about painted itself. I love when it all flows like that.
I love having a digital camera where I can instantly shoot the pic and upload it on the computer. My daughter bought a new digital camera, so I bought her old one. Works perfect for what I need.
