I decided to continue working on the fur and to concentrate more on the eyes and ears to get it as far as possible. Now it's time to work on the background and to clean the entire painting up. With every new layer more and more details are added to the painting to make the Doberman painting look as best as I can manage to paint it. I always think that when we lose a fur baby it is so important to get the likeness spot on. After all, everyone wants to remember their beloved pet as they were and if I can get it as lifelike as possible, then my mission is accomplished.
