SLEEPING DOGS – WATERCOLOUR PAINTING

I’m not sure why I did this one. I came across the image from my trip to Thailand. And then I’m also not sure why I chose watercolour when pastel might have been better. I then sketched them out and I had them arranged like opposing apostrophes on a line. That left a lot of space at the top.

By arranging them on the diagonal I could make the dogs bigger and fill the space – more dog less mud. I also put some grass in at the top for visual relief.

Another challenge was the dappled shade on which I may have failed. Something to ponder during the long nights of winter.
