Cozy by the Fire

LinzeePaints 13 Oct 2021

The perspective is way off, but I think it's cute anyway. Should have probably blurred out the background to make it appear further away. It was for a painting challenge "Cozy by the fire" though, so I didn't want to blur out a main element.



Very cute and very cozy!

It is cute! He does look cozy indeed. I would not blur the background, I think it is more in the same plane as the dog, not tat far away. As far as the perspective being off - do you mean the floor/hardwood? All of the lines on the floor should all be parallel with the ones right next to the dog's head. An easy fix.

Thanks guys! I really like the floorboards at a diagonal. They are the same as the photo I used for reference. I just think the dog and fireplace are too large for the tree. The gifts need to be bigger in order for the perspective to be better. Or maybe I need to fill in the tree branches more so that it's more like the bottom only of the tree. I don't know - something's off with the tree, but it's growing on me. 😃 And it's pretty similar to the reference photo (with some artistic licence of course!)
