Three Dogs Portrait - Next Steps
I've put a wash of light color on the Weimaraner in the background. Her name is Vaeda. We'll go back to her later.
Right now, I want to start with the German Shorthair Pointer - Gunner. Following the areas I've drawn on his face, I fill in washes of color, some brown, some blue where the highlights are.
Since I'm painting with watercolor, this means the white of the paper must be left for those highlights.

Painting the two dogs has taken hours of work and it is now late at night.
As I've also been spending time preparing the house for company on Christmas Day, I am tired!
So in the morning, I'll paint Vaeda's face and then finish the rest of the painting so it is complete by the time the client comes to pick it up!
