LOL - Thanks :). I did pretty good with this one - got a Best in Show and Peoples Choice at one show, and I got asked if it could be used for the cover of a college's yearly booklet, and it got Best Oil at a big western art show and sold there. Funny, because I didn't like it when I got it done !
I definitely need to take photos - my memory isn't that good !! I am old you know. haha Usually I try to get at least 3 or 4 photos from different angles when I see something I want to paint. Of course, wildlife doesn't work that way. It is more snap quick and take notes as to color, etc.
