Cub pastel painting

Next on the easel is another pastel painting inspired by a wild animal encounter at Kisma Preserve. I am not sure why I was tempted to start with the nose but I realize now that I should be working the top left of the painting and methodically working my way down and across. This is to prevent smudging and dirtying of the black background (which I may or may not change)!

Very interesting at this stage. It makes me want to do a painting of an animal with it's snout in the light, and the rest of it in deep shadow. Maybe a sliver of light reaching the eye. Too many ideas, not enough time to follow through with them.

I totally understand John...I have so many ideas in my head that sometimes I just can't decide what to paint!
