I painted Piper's favorite victim for my still life this week in class. I used a palette knife to apply the fur, and a brush for some fine tuning. If I had it to do over again I would do a darker background and spend more time on the table top and face. I completed this one in about two hours. It measures 16x20. Those little specks on the surface are dirt from the ECC parking lot. Half way to my car I dropped the painting face down on the ground...oh well!
As you can see, I flattered the llama a little in my painting by not including that unseemly bald spot at the top of his left leg. That's where Piper knocked him into hot candle wax and I had to trim off the matted hair.
