I was hoping to get this painting done by yesterday, but with work and classes, it seemed it was not to be. :( It ocurred to me however, that the work in progress is very important, and therefore i should post what I have done so far. This way, I can look back and see how horribly it started. :) Besides, i hope this is encouraging to others to see that every work of art starts in the same place - with horrid looking blotches of color. I call them "Splashes of Potential". :)
Here is the reference link from Juza again:
And here is the unfinished Gnu, which I am hoping to have done today, if I have the time between classes.
