“Bailey” (not available for sale, in a private collection)

To capture an accurate likeness, I put the reference image on my tablet that has great graphics and enlarged it. Then I, literally, painted each inch at a time. Here’s what’s interesting about that: up close, you see colors that you would never imagine are there. For instance, this sweet pup, although sandy colored, she had green and red in her fur. When I applied a transparent watercolor glaze over those areas, it was perfect!
