So shall I tell you why I wasn't satisfied with him or let you figure it out for yourself?
Oh well. here goes:
1. His head isn't wide enough in proportion to the rest of him
2. The wing is too wide and doesn't look as if it is sitting flat against him.
3. The tail is too wide in proportion to the rest of him.
I do like his head, his eye and the spots on his breast, but I'm so picky! I am rarely satisfied with what I paint. I have thoughts of trying to correct him this weekend, but this is water color and I may just ruin him. It's either that or doing him over and I hate doing things over. Also, I have Wanda's plate of figs waiting to be done and some other still life pieces Sandy has contributed.
Thank you Crusty Crone for the encouragement. I wouldn't have posted him if you hadn't said something.
Then too, I must visit the shelter tomorrow and Saturday. Poor Sterling is all alone and was so pleased to see me today. I promised to go back again tomorrow. All his room mates have been adopted! And he looks at me with those big yellow eyes as I get ready to leave the room, that seem to say "Are you going to leave me here all alone? Take me with you, p..l..e..a..s..e..."
Tomorrow I will beg the powers that be to put another friend in there for him.
