Looking back at the initial steps I wish I had paid more attention to the original drawing and value blocking stage and stuck with them. I ended up changing too much in the details stage including the floor and wallpaper colors. I painted over and over and over and over and my paper is buckled in some places but I'm finally happy with it. (The curly ears were cute but that's not how she really looks so I covered them up) I may try another puppy! It was a fun, educational class and I highly recommend it. It was very therapeutic! Thank you, Cecile!
