Her Mum Whitney has asked me to paint her two Ridgebacks and so here I present Berk.
My initial pencil drawing was the basis for the subsequent watercolour washes.
Over a few days I added more form and then fine-tuned for details.
I hope I have captured her spirit.
After painting this dog I realise that really I much prefer painting smooth-coated and short-haired dogs. Another lesson learnt!
What is your preference in doggies? Smooth and sleek or shaggy and rugged? I would love to see which is tops.
