The Veranda - One

the study
the sketch
detail
Now we are off and running. I've sketched the image onto a 40" x 30" hardwood panel and begun the addition of some background color. I like working on a wooden panel as opposed to canvas because I can do fluid line work and intricate details much easier, and since I'm working in acrylics, this too is a consideration. I already see where I will have to make corrections. The cheetah's face is just not right. But we shall get to that when we get to that!

ohh very exciting! I love how you've made her headwrap much bigger than your mock-up. I can't wait to see the finish piece!
