After I finished my fox painting that I posted yesterday I was reminded of Koishii. As always. Koishii Lees is our Shiba Inu. And she looks like a little fox. Or a minature Akita, which is what Shiba Inu's kind of are. But she likes to think she looks like a fox. Or maybe a timber wolf.
So here's Koishii! Neither picture shows her cute curly tail. I don't have a photo of her in this pose but she does it often. It's usually followed by a shiba-fit. That might be the reason I don't have a picture of her like this. It's hard to keep her still sometimes when she's in full-on-play-mode!
Anyways I'll bet my influences here are easy to guess. I've been very influenced lately by artists Jesse Reno (whose class I can't wait to take at Art & Soul Virginia!!!) and Alabama artist Suzan Buckner. Both artists create layer over layer over layer of color. I'm finding myself doing more of these layer effects and I've been happy which the results each time.
