i got a photo of this dog from a friend online. he would like me to paint his dog for him. then i did follow my skill and style. first i sketched his face and position that was very easy for me. then i paitned with watercolor in same palet. on the shape and his face,there were only 3-4 colors that i used such as black , burnt siana, ultramarine blue ,cobalt blue,yellow ochre.however i worked a lot on the background with fully colors. i think i have revised it again and again. first time it did light color to stress the object as the dog,in the other hand , the image look not fresh and dry. therefore i did again by adding pussian blue , saft green ,ultra marine blue and cobalt blue.especially , i tried to make color gradation from top to down and left to right. the result from dong that the background looked strong and more prespective. anyway a problem from the referenced photo that was not complete the dog position, you could see both legs in front of him was lacked feet. then i got solution by harmonized color of background on the dog fornt legs and blured them. finally i sent this photo to his owner, he looked happy to see it in painting. he would like to buy this painting to hang in his home that made me more confidense that i would good at animal paintings .
