Spaceman sketches set #5
This pair was the last two from this series. I plan on continuing this series, but lately life (or laziness) has been getting in the way. When I sketched in the Dog painting, the air tube originally filled the entire composition, twisting and curving around ornately.
As I started painting the piece, I realized that I had no focus and simplifiedI it so the dog would retain the focus. As for the Astronaut in the cockpit, I just wanted to do a piece that could tell whatever story that popped in the viewer's head. Is he crashing...taking off...does he really need to pee?
