Raccoon Painting in Progress

I am working on a larger oil painting of our two rescue raccoons right now.  This will probably be the final painting in my raccoon series for a while.  I’ve started working on some other animal and landscape themes.  I’ve painted “the girls” separately, but wanted to create a painting of the two of them.  I started with a warm red undertone and then blocked in the composition and main forms. I work on the composition as a whole but develop the background first before adding more detail to the main subject, in this case the raccoons.

I’ll b adding more pictures to this post as I finish the painting.
