This is Marty again. Thought I'd try out some black Mi-Teintes paper and is it fun! I think this is the best piece of art I've done in color. Marty always had that blue handball in his mouth (crooked because of lack of teeth) and wanted me to throw it. Of course I did, and he would never quit fetching it. Framed and on the wall. Thanks for looking/commenting!

Thanks Sandi :) and Stealth for your comments!

I thought this came out quite well (much more blended-looking than the photo). The thing is, I didn't give the black paper the slightest regard as anything different (re, Stealth's thread), mostly because I don't know any better:). Is there anything I should correct here? Or do different next time?

I've entered it into an "All Creatures Great and Small" art contest. No one better buy it tho.......I could never part with it.

Shirl ... This painting of Marty is awesome!!!! Such a beautiful dog you have there. Love the way you do the coloring & shading. And his eyes really do say 'come on and play with me!' :)
