A Little Bit of Piecemeal Evolution: Dog Portrait

The other day I was working on a dog sketch from an image on Sktchy. I ran off the page with my green brush pen sketch and of course turned it into a “Piecemeal Style” painting, complete with washi tape and of course finished off with gouache. I didn’t think about taking photos at each […]
