Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this piece. I am new to watercolor and wanted to try painting a dog in this medium. I have painted dog portraits before in pastel but they were not very loose. So I started out painting the fur with watercolor and moving it with water layering colors as I painted. When it came to the face I felt it needed to be painted in detail so that is how I worked it. I like the way it turned out because it is both loose but also a likeness of the dog showing his beautiful place.
