I put rainbow colors on my palette, and then just played until I got the right mix. I used to hate painting white fur (and since a Bichon is totally white, I would put off painting for days), but then I decided I needed to ignore the white and just go for the shadows. Now I love to paint white.
8″x10″, oil on stretched canvas.
