Portrait of a Dog as it Happens: Day 2

Pippin :  Defining Spaces and Shapes  Day 2
This part of the painting requires a lot of thought. In Watercolor you have to define the lights and dark areas before you actually put any paint on the painting. I actually paint in shape markers and block in the darkest spots before defining the out line. In a water color it is what you leave undone that is the light.  This painting will be an 8 by 10 watercolor head portrait of a JRT/Poodle Cross.
