Part of the project.
This artwork is a combination of line drawings and water colour and/or ink paintings of an original photograph of Hartley (a Jack Russell that lives in the UK) which are then scanned and digitally combined with drawings, paint splatters and textures. The composition is then art-worked and digitally enhanced/treated using digital effects.
