Commissioned pet portrait.
8 x 10 watercolor on 140# Arches Hot Press Paper.
I thoroughly enjoyed painting this little girl. Her beautiful golden eyes are just mesmerizing. I love those long white eyebrow hairs. I started by laying down a really light wash of color over the areas, then concentrated on the eyes. Once you get the eye done, the whole painting comes to life and is much more fun to paint. I then took a teeny tiny brush and started putting in the hair.
