Watercolor on Fabriano 140# Paper
Number 12 of the 30 in 30 Challenge took me a couple of days to complete. I took the photo of my hubby and his new puppy just the other morning as I was leaving for work. I just glanced down behind the house to see this, and immediately knew it would make a great painting. Paul usually doesn't like it when I paint him, but maybe this will be different. I just wonder, which is his best friend? The rifle or the dog? The old saying goes that a dog is man's best friend, but give this man a gun and dove season and I might beg to differ. Of coarse if I were to "ask" him, he'd better say that I'm his best friend! I did have fun doing this one. Watercolor is the medium that I enjoy doing detail work with. A couple of days of this concentration, will undoubtedly throw me into a cycle of loose, fun, creative abstracts. There has to be a balance for me. Hope you enjoy it.
