Husky Watercolor Painting

A Husky watercolor portrait I painted the other month.
This was an 11x14" painting. It was a fun one to do a bit larger. I used a larger brush than I usually work with and was able to get some nice textures with it.

Kelpie Dog watercolor

A new custom dog portrait. Two Australian Kelpies, named Kip and Rudi. An enjoyable one to paint, interesting eye colors, and I had fun with the background.

New dog watercolor portraits - pitbulls

Some new work added to the portfolio. Including these two cute pitbulls. They were a fun project. Painted a bit looser than my normal style, I think this fits their personalities and poses nicely. Both are 8x10 watercolors.
