First Pass Complete–with a request for feedback please

It was obvious on my last post that I had just finished blocking in the puppies.  Today I worked on their surroundings.  Everything is now covered with paint and some sort of color. First pass done with puppies

Taking pictures of a painting in process is very helpful for me.  Even though I stand back, squint and do all those things throughout the process, a picture places it in a different dimension for me.  It’s weird–now that I see it this way I know where, in my next pass, I will change some values, reshape a few of the “sunlight” lines on the couch, and it gives me an idea of where I want to start on the dogs.  I can’t wait to get back to them tomorrow and start making them the stars of the show.

A little feedback please–what do you think about the sunlight from the blinds–should I keep that effect or ditch it?  Once I start painting the dogs I do not want to go back an correct all that.

      Ha ha. I think you can be more helpful than that. So does that mean you like the sunlight? I kinda like it, it does take more concentration on values and shapes. Am I lazy or what?

    I think the sunlight is beautiful cutting across the dogs & the bed. It is the other living thing in the picture and adds so much life to a scene meant to give us the “warm fuzzies” Gorgeous.

    I like the sunlight from the blinds. I vote to leave it and even enhance it.
