Today, I'm going to post another 'one day wonder' as some have called them. Here is the beginning of a small work, started about ten minutes ago, let's say just about noon for time-keeping sake! I'll try and update every hour or so and we'll see if I finish up by dinner time.


(1:08 PM posting) One of the little guys just about done. Hard to see the subtle variations in the 'black' coat of this guy, but maybe when it's all said and done and I photo it outside in natural light, all that will show up.



(2:12 PM posting) Building up some whites now on this foreground guy. Time to make a cup of afternoon tea!



(3:08 PM posting) Well, this one has gone a lot faster than I expected. I guess I am on a roll today! Anyway, appears to be another hour or a bit more of work and this one will be done.

And here (4:30 PM posting time) is the completed work. Image size on this one is 5 1/4" x 5 1/4"

Turned out pretty good. Seems as though me and you both are working on pencil drawings today. I'm currently working on a doe drawing. I'm just getting started on it. Only got one ear done so far.

Love this! You are making us painfully slow artists look bad...:)
I guess that is why you are the master pencil guy!

Wonderful concept and depth. And the title is simply perfect. One can't help but smile.
Great piece!
