I painted my parent’s cute little dog this week. He is a Morkie, a Maltese and Yorkshire terrier mix. I lightly sketched his placement on the paper and was surprised at how quickly the painting came together.
I took a few pictures as I was painting and I could see the pup coming to life on the paper. I thought it would be fun to share the process with you in this post.
The eyes are painted first and then a few spots of color here and there to clearly define the overall shape so that I don’t get lost while painting.
Then adding more paint to define the face and ears while trying not to over do it.
Continuing on with more definition and finally some background color using Daniel Smith Phthalo Blue (one of my favorite colors!). Below is the finished painting on Canson Watercolor paper.
What are your favorite paints and colors? I would love to hear from you.
