    Working on a demo piece for a local business. They buy and sell dog paintings. The owner gave me a good reference picture of one the dogs she rescued from a shelter. I hope to be putting together some paintings that she will buy.

    Started out by transferring the reference with Saral paper.

    Started by laying down some Burnt Umber to build the shadows and texture.

    Also put down a thin layer of Paynes Grey in the background because most of the background is on the cool side.

    Building more depth on the dog, here is what I have done so far.

    Started adding the backflush with Paynes Grey on the curtains in the background.
    ImageUploadedByTapatalk1406506296.742898.jpg

    Matched the base tone of the wall paint with some orange, killing the chroma a bit with some blue. Then a magenta/yellow/green to tint the wall paint and being it to a value of 5 as in the reference.
    ImageUploadedByTapatalk1406506360.544857.jpg

    Added some blue orange to the cabinets in the background as well as deepened the shadows on the curtains with Sepia Smoke. Some base shadows were also added with the Sepia Smoke.

    Here is where I am at right now.
    Some more Blue and Violet added to the cabinets to add depth, the. The highlights were erased again.

    Not too outlandish Trish. :)
    Value is just a scale of how dark the color is. I use a scale from 1-10. So the wall color is a mid tone.

    They are not interchangeable though. I can mix a midtone for a flesh color, but that doesn't necessarily mean it's going to be in the middle of the value scale.
    In most cases Value is the most important part of a painting. Even if the colors and saturation are off, you can still tell what a painting is. If the value is off, it loses it's form and goes to hell. :)

    So that's where I'm going wrong. Lol! My colour theory is - wing it.

    10 hours into the painting so far. Added the first layer of the fur color and some more erasing. 2 or 3 more colors and some final tone shifting and it will be done.

    Deepened shadows with Burnt umber. Tinted the fur with some red/brown, and added some details to the eye and nose.
