Tough Guy-Pig Portrait

 Close up

Oil on 7x5 canvas panel.

This is my contribution to this week's WDE at Wet Canvas. Gillian supplied all the reference photos. Thanks, Gillian.

 I chose a close crop of a pig because usually pigs are fun, feel good, subjects and fairly easy to paint. It turned out I was wrong and wronger on both counts!
I was all over the map with those colors and the longer I fussed, the more baleful that eye became. I thought I'd better call it quits before he had me for breakfast with his eggs!                           

I used a heavily loaded brush and allowed the paint to mix on the canvas....gets some interesting blends that way.
C&C welcome. Thanks for checking it out!
