My hope is to post here every Friday the progress I am making on each wildlife portrait. This little raccoon is beginning to take shape pretty good.
This week, I worked on the collage-piecing and spent all of today working on just the water. This is extremely important as there is a reflection in the water of the nose and muzzle. Without the reflection, this piece would not be as strong. Thread painting will start soon, then it will get really exciting around here!
