I had a surprise one day visit from a grandchild this weekend and only got to work a short time. I am getting very close to completing this piece. Hoping to deliver this week. Sometimes, I find the plain areas of fur to be the most difficult...harder to see some of the shapes.

Here is the latest. Did not get much done yesterday. Of course, I am now working on the "boring part". Ann Kullberg is right, save the eyes for last...they are the "Fun Part"! I found great satisfaction in working on the eyes and the complicated mouth on this piece. In this case, I am trying to work from left to right to keep from smearing or smudging. Working on large areas af fur can be quite tedious although in this case, there is some shaping involved. I hope to put in more "fur" time this afternoon.

Started the other eye area this morning. I am posting several updates. Note that I have softened the area where the sky and land meet. It looked to hard to me. As I move along, I keep going back to the mouth area to tweak it. Looking at the photos I take at each step are a big help in seeing areas that need more work.
