Portrait of Najee - block in



Najee is a beautiful 2 year old German Shepard. I'm creating a portrait of him which will hang at the San Francisco Animal Care and Control offices.
I start on a 30"x40" canvas lightly toned with burnt umber. My initial block in is extremely wet and created with a large brush and a rag for wiping out. This only takes about 10 minutes and is just to set the position on the canvas.
