Watercolor. My dog, Pepper happened along when I was taking photos of my garden. I just couldn’t resist doing a watercolor of her. She is my baby. For those who might be interested, she is an Australian Shepherd Blue Merle.
This was painted on 300 lb hot press waterblock. I favor DaVinci watercolors but use several different brands depending upon the shade I require. I do a lot of glazing in my work. Enjoy.

I am returning to my roots after years of working in the corporate world. I have been working with watercolors for the past 4 years after too many years away from my paints. I hated watercolors when I was in school but love them now. I guess I had no patience in my youth. Ha. Currently residing in Northern California, USA. Enjoy!
