3 Day Dogs - Dog 1 (day1-2)

I've been very busy and have not posted lately.  My newest project is to try and improve my drawing skills and my thread painting.   I downloaded some copyright free images of dogs.  I am using 1 day to sketch the dog and transfer to fabric, one day to freehand cut out fabric and tack it down.  The third day will be to finish with thread painting.  Now I'm not planning on spending an entire day, just allowing a short practice time.

Here are some pictures showing my transition from day 1 to 2.

I changed my mind on the black back ground after sewing all the loose fabric down.  It looks too much like it is the dog's fur.   Here is a cropped pic of the before and after change.
