|Here I have started placing some of the lights on the face, and a background layer. Nothing is close to being completed here., that's why I call it ,"The UGLY Stage"!|
|I start to place some of the dog's coat colors in at this stage. I always allow my under-painting to dry before adding another, or I will end up with a "muddy" mess!|
|I am perfecting her tongue and teeth, have the eyes close to being completed. More of her gorgeous coat layers are added.|
|As you can see, I have added more and more layers of her shiny dark coat, with an equal parts mixture of the Alizarin Crimson.|
