View Full Version : WDE Feb 24 -Kyser & Chelsea on Neighbours porch

Thanks Bonnie for hosting and all the pics. I couldn't resist the dogs - we had one exactly like Kyser so painting this was a great memory for me too. Thought I'd put them on your neighbours porch with your pot plants in front. Didn't have much spare time this weekend to do more but I have left a space for another - maybe.
The invite photo I did while waiting for the uplpoad - tried to do a lovely loose watercolour but after messing it up entirely I scribbled over the mess with black tombow pen. Strathmore Watercolour journal - 1 hour.

With the dogs I went back to my current way of contour drawing first with my tombow pen - about 1 hour - then washes over - another 1 1/2 hours on and off.
Apologies for the lousy evening flash photo.

Great sketches. I really love the dogs and sun porch, so warm and inviting with wonderful shades of colors. They are little gems as Helen said.

Wow Ros! The porch scene looks like it's based on real life and not just a combination of 3 ref photos. I like the first sketch too!
