painting a black dog




Well, this is not finished, but I started trying to paint Rosie. I've wanted to try it for a long time, but was afraid, because it's really hard to paint shades of black with watercolor. Since blue is the underlying color when making black (ultramarine blue + burnt sienna), I started with that for the highlights. I've got to finish it, but I wanted to put it out there to show where I'm starting from. Hopefully I will quit before I mess it up too much.
