Dalmatian in Progress

Annie, 8 x 10" mixed media on Rives BFK Tan paper.

And I have a dilemma, which is whether to try putting a backdrop (softly drawn in a neutral tone) of avocado branches and leaves behind her. This dog LOVES her avocado tree. And eats avocados whenever possible, too.

But the busy spot pattern on her coat is such that I'm nervous about adding anything busy to the background, lest it compete with her and make the drawing "noisy." So I'm torn, and thinking it over.

  1. Can you lay tracing paper over her and lay in the branch on the tracing paper to get a visual? If you don't like it then you can toss the paper and keep what you currently have.
