Here's the latest progress update on Hawk the Rat Terrier - he is very close to being finished. His throat above the collar is still in the underpainting phase. I've saved that part for last so the hair will "sit on top of" his collar when I paint it. All that's left after that is to add some finishing details to the face and do a little more work to the background. I'm really liking the looser, somewhat painterly (for me) look of this piece. Switching paints to Golden Open halfway through was a little risky, but I think it paid off. :-)
