PPF Paint Party Friday, New Piggy, Nestor

My Pet Pig Painting of the week for Paint Party Friday
Nestor, the pot bellied pig, lives at Ironwood Pig Sanctuary

He will go on sale next week after I figure out if the place where his chin meets his water dish needs more work.  Any suggestions would be appreciated.  I have  been working on this for a week, and I can't decide if it's done.

Thanks!

  4. Maybe the side of the bowl should be darker? Maybe a reflection or shadow from the chin? I really think you could leave it as is, it's his face that draws us in! Another brilliant piggy!

  6. I really wouldn't have noticed the bowl if you hadn't said as the focus is on the pig! You could do what Cat suggested but (like she says) I don't think it's essential :)
