Raggedy Ann

This is the second year that one of our local art associations is having their OTB(outside the box)
auction. This is a fundraiser for an addition and improvements to their building. I had such fun doing it last year that I did it again this year. I did another colored pencil and I think it is finished now.

6"x6" oil pastel

Finally finished another small painting to make 10 all together. This is another variation of the scallions. oil pastel on gessoed board.

angel update

Here is another update to Angel. Almost finished, but I didn't know what to do with the strip left at the bottom as it seemed so plain. She did have her paws on a table in the ref photo and was eyeing a plate of cucumbers, which she loves. I decided to put the edge of a plate there with a cucumber on it.

Dog update

Finally got back to this for a day as my studio has been so hot over the last week. The oil pastels were working today though for awhile. Thoughts of an AC in the studio is looming. 3 of us share the space so we would split the cost.
I have work to do on the paws and in the ref image they are very dark and I am thinking of making them lighter. I really would like to get this finished by the end of the week.
