Messy Piglet


Looking through a magazine I came across a photo of a piglet looking rather pleased with itself and thought it was a perfect subject to try and catch on canvas. I started out with a very rough sketch and then continued with roughly breaking the white of the canvas with some bright colours, not particularly characteristic for a pig. Contemplating on how to continue I paused for a short coffee break during which the little fellow kept staring out at me, seemingly quite pleased with its messy state. It rather appealed to me and I didn't want to lose that effect, so I decided to just leave it as it is for now and perhaps just start on a new one. Acrylic on canvas (30 x 40 cm).
