          Hi All:

          Finally got back to working on ‘Mandy’ I was able to continue work on her ears and neck area. Along with her collar, tags and tag rings. Still need to get back to shading on each side of her tongue doesn’t read right to me. The skin and fur in those area's tend to be very loose and with the collar the skin falls over. It's just a matter of rendering with fur direction and shading.
          It’s been interesting for me going from sepia burning to color while working on a oil painting. But in an odd way both have helped me with each other. Also I’m working on another gourd a present for my mother-in-laws dining room table. When I start the pineneedle weaving I'll have hubby take step by step images for all interested in my unprofessional technique. LOL
          As always I value your thoughts and comments.

            Just finished looking at "Mandy" it's terrific!! I was surprised when I saw the WIP as I'm about to put the finishing touches on "Pepper". He is similar to your "Mandy"...black and white markings, but only part spaniel and ???

            My approach is pointillism..... a three quarter view of the head...tongue not showing. The collar with the round ID tag and birth and death dates are on it.

              Big Smile Hi Jax: Thank you, Mandy's coloring would make for a wonderful painted portrait too. When I told my daughter of my plans she loved the idea of a woodburning. As she has so many of my paintings already I think the idea of some variety sound good to her. lol
              You mentioned your portrait is in pointillism what medium? I notice you are a carver have you carved a portrait of 'Pepper' great name by the way. Could we see your portrait when you get it finish?

                    Hi Jax, sorry don't see the image did you use the 'Manage Attachments down near the bottom? Save your image as a jpg (good one) and 400 to 600 pixel. If your upload is successful your file extension will show in 'Manage Attachments'.
                    Let us know if you need further help.

                    Looks like this

                          Hi Mel, thank you LOL glad you came out of hibernation! tee hee

                          Hi Jax, very, very nice your woodburning technique looks like it takes a very light pressure and or very low temp (beautiful eyes). I have a suggestion I wasn't sure when I ask to see your portrait what medium you were actually using. Now that I see it's woodburning why not start your own 'thread' here in this forum. That way more will see and respond to your portrait of Pepper. I don't want anyone to miss this sensative portrait. Great idea of adding both the birthdate and deathdate on the tag.

                            Jax, I so agree with Kathy! That is a beautiful example of pointalism and deserves it's own thread. I would love to see a small WIP as I have not done any burnings in that style.

                                Thumbs Up Great Jax, glad to see you did start that thread and what wonderful work in deed. Please continue to share, even a work in progress (WIP). As pointillism is a new burning technique to me a WIP would be very instructive. I know others would enjoy and learn from you.
                                Glad you join us,
