Royal Hugo

I am painting a lovely dog called Hugo.

He will be king one day and to prove it he is wearing his crown in readiness.
With his Union Jack Bandana and solemn regal look he looks just perfect don’t you think? Part two to come tomorrow..

Enjoy – Alison

1 – Here is Hugo with his main tonal areas already painted (sorry – I was so enthusiastic I forgot to photograph the earlier stages!)

2 Add cadmium red for the velvet of the crown and the stripe on his Union Jack Bandana


4 Darken his nose and rest of face with more raw sienna mixed with burnt umber.

5 – Place darker washes of the same colour above his eyes to form this area.

6 – Add yellow to the crown

More tomorrow – Alison
