Starting to edge back into painting after a bit of a vacation. This one turned out well I think. It was a little flat for the longest time while I was working on it, then when I added the hints of blue in the dog's fur that seemed to set it off nicely (though the blue is not quite as pronounced in the painting as it appears here--at least not as I view it on my computer . . . always a struggle to get color looking just right when posting digitally). The title "Killer" just came to me looking at the intense pose and stare of the dog (humorously counterbalanced by the dog's size, of course, but don't tell Killer that). Thanks for viewing!
