Some of you may remember that I started this portrait of Timmy before, same time last year to be exact, but on a much larger scale and oblong sized canvas. It didn't work out, the photo looked wonderful but in paint it didn't come out right. Part was the composition but also the detail in his fur caused me grief. Still it's a sweet image of our white/ginger boy so I'll give it another try on a small 20x20cm canvas. I want to keep the same direct and impressionistic approach like in the past few paintings so it's a challenge to not overwork it. Stay tuned!
