|Here is my drawing|
|First wash of mid Raw Sienna was very liquid – I left parts white for the ears inside and the white blaze on chest|
|Darkening dark areas with Burnt Umber/Burnt Sienna and a touch of French Ultramarine whilst still wet.|
|Paint over the whole lot with a wash of mid brown and let it all fuse|
|When almost dry go in with darks for the nose, the eyeballs and the back of that graceful curved neck. Don’t worry about runs.|
|When almost dry I used a clean damp wiped brush to carefully lift out colour around the nose to form it|
I loved painting this dog although I had a few near misses with him and he turned out much darker than he is in reality. Still – I am gearing up to paint one of his brothers and sisters next.
Come over and see him and other dog originals in my Etsy shop or how about a commission of you rown dog ? Thanks for reading. Alison
