I have painted this before with the whole body. This time, I wanted to do a focused portrait. It is very tricky to keep the colors soft. The way to do it is use transparent nonstaining pigments. I used Rose madder, aureolin, cobalt turqoise, viridian, and alizarin. So, basically no blacks, greys, or browns! I think it looks good!

Winter Sun!

This is Mido, my beagle, sun bathing. I did the acrylic first, which is still to be finished, but I wanted to do it again in watercolors. I think it looks good! Colors used: Aureolin Yellow, Viridian green, Rose Madder, and Ultramarine blue!
