Watercolor, 8"x10", Arches 140# cp

I set this ref aside and forgot about it. I recently saw a demo of a Jack Russel Terrier and wanted to try some of the techniques and this ref was perfect to do so.

This is done in a limited palette, just French ultramarine and quin rust. I did an underpainting and softened all the edges as I went to help give the feeling of fur.

Not sure how long it took, guessing around 3 hr.

Thanks Mary Y for the ref. Sorry you had to wait so long to see it.

Luv the limited palette, I'm a big fan of all the quin colors, they are so fresh and pure. That softening in the underpainting, really achieved lovely fur texture..... Excellent work!!!!:wave:

Anne,
What a lovely painting of Rusty, I feel if I touched him his fur would be soft.
The limited palette worked really well .
