How to paint a dog shit - step 2

It's usually best to start from the background and work forward. You will see why as we progress. So the first thing to do is paint the sky not only because it is in the background but because the sky is the source of light in Nature and it governs everything including our dog shit.

Mix a cobalt blue with a little white and if you're painting in the afternoon add a little yellow, not cadmium it's too strong, I suggest a naples yellow would give us the subtlety and warmth we're looking for.

Allow to dry.
