Okay, now I feel like the pairing of Xander and his prized toy is coming through in the painting a little better. The bag has a handle now. I redefined his shoulder, forearm and tail. I worked on his eyes a bit but I think I made them worst. Anyway, my daily painting is now entering day three. Oh well. I'm still pretty happy with it but starting to get that creeping feeling that the painting has overstayed it's welcome on my easel. Time to sign and move on.
