Grisaille of Alison

Have spent hours trying to get this grasaille of Alison to look good, but finally gave up when it dawned on me that I wouldn't get the right look with the craft paint I was using.  Good enough for now.  I can work off of copies of this and try some different techniques using glazing.  The photo was taken of her in Thailand by her friend, Lisa Harrington and I feel it pretty much captures her.

Xena, Warrior Princess - this dog is so not.  I can't believe our good fortune in finding a dog that is sweet, snugly, beautiful, playful, friendly and quiet!  The only thing I can find wrong with her is that she needs a dental appointment. She is such a pleasure to have around.  As I get to know her better, I'm sure you will be seeing a whole lot of her :)
