I planned to update earlier in the week but the snow threw all plans out the window!
I feel like I’ve been working, or thinking about work for the last 72 hours straight. Day 6 tomorrow but I’m feeling good! I won’t go into details, but we’ve done so well recently, and I’m proud of my team and of myself. It’s exciting and rewarding to think of our potential. Definitely worth the mission of getting into work.
Here’s a picture of Molly-Moo looking like a wild thing in the snow:
She loved it! Although she wasn’t such a fan of the ice-ball snow boots that formed around her legs. Josh is also generally less anxious in the snow. My theory is he had a good experience back before he was rescued so has nice associations. (That’s pure speculation by the way.)
Back in this post I showed the start of a painting. I’ve worked on it for a couple of hours more.
The biggest difference is that I’ve added some highlights to the grass, tweaked the scale of the bike, added some detail to the leaves and basket in the background and slightly changed the proportions of a couple of things.
Things I’ll continue to work on:
- I want to block out Josh’s toggle on his collar. It’s accurate, but kind of manky in real life.
- I need to add some shadow to the background.
- I’m really keen to find a super fine paintbrush and add lots of little details, especially to Josh’s fur!
Hope you’ve all been able to enjoy the snow and not been too disrupted by it.
