Guarding the Ball of Power

oil painting of ball and teddy bears
Also known as "My dog's Toys", this is a small study for a larger painting that I have previously posted. I revisited it recently with a view to building a similar but more complex set-up for another larger painting, perhaps with more variety of texture. I like working with brush and knife in the same painting.
The "Ball of Power" is so called because of the impression my timid, little dog gives that - with a tennis ball in his mouth - he is transformed into a super hero.
