Yellow and Green, 6 x 6 inch oil on panel

I tried to keep this painting as loose and simple as possible, which is never easy for my detail-oriented brain, but I'm getting the hang of it. The dog was one of those Chewbacca types (a walking carpet), with so much hair that it was hard to see the body structure. Simplifying it down to light and shadow helped me find the form of the body, rather than concentrating on all that fur.
I love the bright yellow and green bag, and also the way the man's shoes match the color of his dog.
