Christmas-Day 3

From Calendars back to Christmas ornaments;

Here is another little bauble I painted for a close friend. It is a porcelain ball and has a parade of puppies. There is a boxer, beagle, cocker spaniel, golden retriever and a little westie. (Sorry, the pic of the side with the little westie was under exposed and didn't turn out).
The ornament was painted in sepias and hunter green, finished off with a light mocha and golden bow for a bit of 'bling.'

One of the hardest things about painting on a sphere is how to hold it still! Tried two items that worked: an egg cup, which was okay but a little slippery, then used a cardboard egg carton, which worked great!
