This week the blighted Blue Heeler went from this:
.. to this version, in which many things have been un-painted to be re-painted later.

This looks like progress on the leg! (which is probably another instance of "if it looks weird in a photo, good luck making an accurate representation of it look not-weird in art" - sometimes fudging things results in them making more sense, since the human viewing the painting doesn't know about weird light sources, accidental forced perspective, etc. that were at play when the photograph was made?)

KC - boring for all of you, but a challenge for me.

Well, I'm not finding it boring; it's interesting seeing what you've changed on each occasion (although thank you for posting the before-and-after each week instead of making us trawl through the archives to remember what it looked like last week). Making a teeny slice of experienced-but-not-professional artistic process visible results in fascination over here...

KC - so boring and frustrating over here - especially when the last dog was such a cakewalk!

Often frustrating results in new skill growth, though, so there's that at least? (cold comfort, I know, while you're pushing through the annoyance and don't yet *know* whether your brain will click-click-click anything out of this experience yet, but maybe?)

KC - I don't really think I'm growing new skills. I think I just need to gut my way through it.

Eh, the skill of gutting your way through things is something, too; i am trying to learn that to a greater degree and it is going slowly. (but: odds are that you're also learning incrementally about what the paint does and how to really see how things are shaped, etc. Just not noticeable.)
