Piggy in the Mirror - Revisited



So after some crazy shaping with a sanding disk, the pig mirror is finished. I cut a backing board and decided it was an opportunity for a secret painting. And it's great, I love it! 
It's funny, I've been agonising about how to paint, and what sort of paintings I want to make, then I quickly knocked out this little pigs head based on a sketch of something else I've been working on and it's spot on. Just the right mix of drawing and shading. A limited pallet of analogous colours. Makes me feel like I've been trying too hard. Did I mention that I've also had a couple of beers.
