Atticus In Oil

Currently, in my spare time, I'm practicing oil painting techniques using M. Graham and Co. oil paints. Here's a goofy portrait of my best friend Atticus. This is on a 6 inch by 6 inch Ampersand bord panel. I had a lot of fun painting this one, especially the eyes. He often has a deep expression through his eyes. I think he resembles Falkor from Neverending Story. I wish he could fly, that would be awesome...
