Close but not quite yet

Nik is starting to glow

Nik is starting to glow

Nik has his stray hairs back now, and a lot more color. I still need to work on making the front of the head “pop” a little more, but I’m happy with the tinkering I did on the background. I have a few photos of different angles and lighting levels for Nik, so I had to make a decision as to how red he should really be. The photo used for the painting had what I would call super-saturated color, and he is a lot redder in that photo than in the others, where he appears to be a rich red-brown.  Or in horse lingo, a blood bay.   So that’s the direction I’m headed with the color.
