A week or so ago I finished the first dog for the Big 500 show. Today it was dog 2. My color goal for this particular painting was originally to use the triad color scheme. The colors would be blue, yellow and red. I work very transparently building up layers of paint and the yellow had some trouble over the blue underpainting. For this reason I ended up moving more of the painting red (or orange-ish) than yellow. However, I really like that the yellow still peaks through.
