Painting For Fun!

Here's a painting I did last night! It was nice having acrylic paint on my hands again. I used colored pencil for the leaves. This is based off of a Valentino outfit from Pinterest and inspired by Paper Fashion!

Here's a slideshow of the process! Music is "Different Colors" by Walk the Moon.

Quick illustration of my black labrador, Rallydog Champion of the Universe Case (that is his legal name):

He loves his stuffed peppermint Christmas present!  I was inspired to paint this after looking at Salamispot's process video!
