Today I painted a King Charles spaniel that belongs to a friend's friend. Tema's dog, Max is so cute! I used one of Rhea's photos that she took when visiting them in California. In addition to regular watercolors I used watercolor pencils and touches of white ink for his whiskers. Because I am working small (5x7) using masking or painting around the whiskers just wouldn't work.
I still have a few sketches from 2016 that weren't posted yet. This was done at Starbucks week when I met with sketching friends recently.
