Sweet puppy! Good work on the fur and eyes. You just have to love that face.

Linda Young said...

Thank you Jean. I love dogs!

Angela said...

Thank you Angela.

Linda I love this painting. I am amazed. You have done such a great work in watercolor. This definitely qualifies as the top execution of the commissioned portrait. There is nothing to change or improve. Simply go and start getting those commissions :)

Pat Koscienski said...

Great painting, Linda. I love the strong, rich colors you have in his fur. And, your great use of warm and cool colors.

Linda Young said...

Thank you Lela and Pat. Lela, I would like to get more commissioned portraits; if only I knew where to start.

Nancie Johnson said...

Linda, wonderful work. Love the coloring you inserted in the fur and eyes - really brings it to life.

Paula said...

I love the eyes. They are very expressive and warm. Achieving such deep and convincing black is not easy with watercolor and you have done it very well! Very good shadows, too.

Thank you, Nancie and Paula. I took a class several years ago to paint wildlife and it really focused on eyes of birds, fox, etc. The class paid off for me when I painted this puppy's eyes. The black in this painting was made with combinations of U.M. Blue, Cobalt and Burnt Sienna.

Such a nice balance of warm colors and cool colors make this a really wonderful painting.
His eyes are what immediately grabbed my attention - they are so real.

wow - you've gotten such rich deep color in this - great black - & you've really caught the perspective of the muzzle, too - so hard to amid all the black & curls!
