Default My latest painting!!!!!!!

Yup, I do paint....I haven't painted since I was 17 years old and tonight I got bit by the bug to paint. I came across some water colors and chose to use those, the last time I used water colors to paint I was 6 years old. Tonight I did something I never thought I could do, I made a realistic painting using JUST watercolors! I'm soooo proud of have no idea. Watercolors are hard to work with and it was so easy to use it's not funny. I used cheap watercolors too! I only had 16 colors to choose from and I made it work!

But enough rambling here's my painting of my beloved Beagle Boy Beau!!!


The result!!

My reference picture

I was also thinking if I got enough interest, would anybody be interested in buying one of these of their dog?

Yes I would LOVE to buy!!! I think people would really be interested. I'm going to be short on money until like August but I would at least like to get a painting of my moms dog that passed for Christmas and of my dogs if money allows.

People here love pet portraits! A few of us are artists, and many Chazzers have been our clientele. <3

That's good stuff!

You definitely did make it work! Impressive!

I'm really impressed. I'm no artist by any means but when I have dabbled water colors were always the hardest for me to use.
Thank you Vivien and Angel Chicken for the siggy! Also I have been frosted!!! And as of 9/13/07 I know the secret handshake!
