Working on Peanut

Here is little Peanut. I have been working on her for about two days now. I think she is starting to come together. I have to say the hardest part is definitely the neck area. I have just started blocking in that area so it has a ways to go. The muzzle and nose area are pretty close, I'm also fairly happy with the eye areas. Ears, forehead, and right side of the face still need a lot of work. I tend to work in acrylics like a watercolorist. Lots of water and layer upon layer. One advantage I have over the watercolor is the ability to "paint out" an area with gesso and start over. I found out that can really help cut down on the frustration level.
