JUST a Spider?


6 x 6
Acrylic on Panel
Hairy, is on task.
 I believe he found a spider.
Not a problem, I just have always been uncomfortable  being in the same building with one! 
Last I looked he was still staring it down.
 I am counting on him to handle this emergency!
About the painting ...
I loved the challenge of the subtle color changes of his white coat. The blues, oranges, purples, etc are there and I exaggerated them as usual. The softness of his fur was carried into the neutral background for a soft effect.
The temptation to do a solid, intense background color was there but today I just wanted to have the color continue out from Hairy's hair.
Don't you just want to feel his soft fur? 
He is such a great model!
