Camille, the two Mutts are great. I particularly love the "egg yolk" yellow background in 2. No offence to you or Mr. Mutt...ha! Yellows, greens and blues are your signature.

I like both of them! I love seeing multiple interpretations of one scene.

Thank you very much,Donna,Ciao, Vern and Kerri. You guys are so nice:) I will probably paint another one from another photo -- it's such a good lesson for me in values and edges and all that stuff.
Happy Thanksgiving to you!

I like the colors in the first, and the shape/brushstokes in the second.

I love your brushwork and the colors in this one.

Thanks, Pam and Becky. It's fascinating to see how different things appeal to different people, isn't it? I had fun doing it both ways but I think the 2nd version is closer to the style I prefer for myself.
