My daughter's first grade teacher gave me a gift for x-mas for volunteering every Friday morning in her class. I asked Sienna what Mrs. Adachi likes and she said beagles. So I painted the puppy, however uninspired it was. Then to loosen up, I did the Nosey Beagle, really taking care to place certain brush strokes just so. I was done in about 30 minutes. I like the rough looseness of it. This year I'm going to take the hyper-jump to oils; acrylics just are not giving me the performance I am looking for.
