Happy Birthday to Adrianne!

Not much to say here.  I liked the photo my daughter took of her and her new adopted dog.  The challenge was trying to get the close up view of the dog to look identifiable.  A lot of pencil strokes later...  In fact many more than I anticipated having to do I got the look I was after, but I might have to tinker once I study it for a bit.  I just finished this and you know how it is.  I'll see something that isn't right and need to go back in.
It's been bothering me that I haven't done a finished watercolor yet.  I want to get that done today, but time isn't on my side.


  1. Thanks, Celeste. Still working on getting some paint on paper now. Too much going on right now.

  2. This is a very tender drawing with beautifully designed dark and light shapes. I love the gentle expression on her face, especially in her eyes... I think it will make a beautiful painting if you decide to carry it in that direction...
