The portrait of Barney continues. I'm still unsure of how I'd like to handle the grass and leaves on the ground. In the meantime, I've started the companion piece - a portrait of Betty. The progress here is about 2 hours worth of work.

Soviet Impressionist Painting

I highly recommend this book. Soviet Impressionist Painting by Vern Swanson.

It's a revised and updated edition of Soviet Impressionism, published in 2001 and sold out. Soviet realist painters are some of the most obscure yet talented of the 20th century.
