Finished portrait of Summer.

 Media: acrylics on canvas paper


Poppy commission (under layer)


Under layer and eyes.
I’m not sure what it’s called, but painting a layer of blue under the main picture has been around for a very long time.
I was told that it helps enrich darker colours like brown. It also helps outline where your shading and highlights are. Very useful for furry things like spaniels  where lines are not well defined.
