Here are a few more steps in the miniature painting (ACEO) for Paloma the little Chihuahua:
(Left, click to enlarge) I have created a light pen and ink drawing, then added an India ink wash background.
12-19 7:00 AM (Left, click to enlarge) I add that rich, blue, and delicious colored pencil over the ink wash background.
(Above) Beginning to add some color to Paloma's coat (I know "the" Paloma is white, but I am inspired to paint this younger fawn colored Chihuahua as an honor to Paloma)
4:30 PM 12-19 (Above) Slowly adding more color and depth to the little Chihuahua
7:30 PM 12-19 (Above) I refined the colors and contrasts a bit as well as lightened an area in front of little Paloma's nose. I will let her rest tonight and finish the painting tomorrow morning.
