this sketch by far is one of my favorite, I had to tilt the board diagonally while painting to achieve the vertical composition. with this painting I'm trying to move out of my comfort zone of my usual palette... it's gonna be another fun project!
oh yeah... i like to paint red noses... don't ask me why.
acrylic on wood 16 x 20

Nice. Liking the colors. Seems like there should be a shadow coming from the bottom of the nose or something though. How lit the upper lip is on the right seems strange to me.

update. update!

I really like this Shawna. Colors are mesmerizing.
I saw someone had a copy of your characters tapes into their planner. I told them I knew you and she said she just loved the characters. Very cool.
