Tess 14" x 10" watercolour on 140 lb Arches Cold Press.

Tess is a lovely dog, a very dignified princess. Her shiny textured short haired coat is a huge range of colour .....reds, oranges, pinks and browns..

Finding the texture in short haired coats is always a watercolour challenge. Too much water = no texture. Too little water = too much texture.

Finding the happy medium of texture and colour while maintaining both is a challenge.

I was contacted in early June by PG's wife. She needed a really good 60th Birthday present for the man who has everything plus an extensive very good collection of visual art. Tess's portrait was created. Presented June 26, 2016

PG's comment "I just wanted to say thank you for the wonderful job you did with Tess' watercolour. I was extremely surprised and amazed on my birthday." June 29, 2016
