Shimmer is now complete and ready for matting. I am so happy with how this portrait turned out. I have to admit that I was scared of starting it but as always it was well worth starting because it just evolved from there.
Well I still working on Shimmer as I am finding it quite a difficult portrait to complete. I have to spend quite a bit of time away from it before i come back as the details are quite difficult to pin down since she is a lovely all white dog, being a large portrait also focusing on the fine details in one area only means you can lose track of the whole thing if you do not pull away often enough. Determination will win through with this one though. I just wish I did not have to work full time as well!
