|Drawing of Miss Nina, my niece's dog|
Spots on nose and eyes masked. First washes of yellow ochre and quin. burnt orange applied, some wet in wet, some wet on dry.
Collar painted in mix of phthalo. and cobalt blue. Starting eyes with usual w/w applications of quin. burnt orange, quin. violet and indanthrone.
Because she has such a shaggy coat, I decided to not paint her w/w, but rather by applying individual thin strokes of colour.
Tongue painted with quin. pink, and shaded in pink, quin. burnt orange and indanthrone. Continue to build up her coat with more thin applications of paint.

Starting to look like Nina.
|Here she is - finished.|
