Clandestine Christmas Commission Part 2

Shideler-painting of yellow labFresh off the easel!

Pretty happy with this gal. There was an interesting lesson in this one.  Yellow dogs are not yellow – no matter what you brain tells you!  I started with an under painting of unbleached white with a touch of ochre and I mean a touch! Well, the yellow tint dominated and was hard to paint over and was just not right.  Once I switched to the burnt sienna and white, I started to “agree” with the color.  Now, there are most definitely yellowish goldish & dark  caramel highlights, but this particular doggie is predominately white-ish with beige undertones.
