 On Target      24" X 36"    Original Oil 

 Because above is a scan of the original painting this may look a bit different than the photos of the painting in progress. My professional scans will always be truer to the original than quick phone photos.

Ugly Rocks

 It is not uncommon for me to hit an ugly stage in a painting. I had a feeling it would be the rocks. With as much detail as there is in the cougar, the rocks could not be amorphous blobs.

 When I get to an ugly stage, I remind myself of all the other paintings which have hit a point when I questioned my choices on a section. Time to make a fresh cup of tea, take a deep breath, pick up the paint brush, and power through to the other side.

Almost done with the cougar. After I finish the lower section I'll go back and paint his whiskers and add some brighter fur sections.
