Pig Revisited


Pig pre-background.  I actually prefer this to the final version and debated whether to put any background in.   In the end I decided to push it to see what happened and regretted it.  Never mind – there will be other pigs.

Anyway – for January’s 30 paintings in 30 days challenge my next subject was ‘pig’.   It’s another animal I revisit periodically and they’re always fun to paint.   Their skin is pale but with a lot of subtle tone and color variation which is interesting to do.   There is always one thing that catches me out however – trotters!!!   Much like bird claws they always catch me out but I’m slowly getting there.

 The drawing.  Had several goes at the trotters before I was (almost) satisfied.

  1. Michele, I like her with or without the blue background, and hey, you never know until you try.
    Love the whimsy.

  3. Just came across your pig again tonight ! I have long admired the sketch (before I knew it had a background to it) and happy to come across it again in your blog. Absolutely gorgeous.
