Gurley Girl #PetLove

Project Description

What type of piece is this? Painting Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this piece. This is a painting of my English Bulldog puppy Gurley Girl. I created this painting trying to capture her playfulness. I used Winsor and Newton artist watercolors and Arches 300# watercolor paper. I worked with traditional watercolor techniques to create my work. Is the piece for sale? No What are you most proud of? Finally learning the "dry brush" technique to suggest fur on my puppy. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Before you ever touch a brush to paper, plan, plan plan. "Paint it" in your head, and make thumb nail sketches to work out composition and lighting. Decide on your color palette before hand. It will make the painting go so much smoother in the long run.
