|Let Sleeping Dogs Lie/ oil on board/ 4" x 4"/SOLD|
I especially like the splash of the green on the dog's nose which is the compliment to the background red.
Recently, I have been working on some large watercolor paintings which are not suitable for my daily small painting posts. To be certain that I continue to have watercolor represented in small format, I am starting "Watercolor Wednesdays" where at least one completed small watercolor will be posted weekly.
This is the first stage of next Wednesday's post. The background has been painted with windsor purple, burnt sienna, indanthrone, indian yellow and sap, skip's and undersea greens (tube greens are all mixed the preceding colors in varying combinations). The paper is Fabriano cold pressed 140 # that has been presoaked and stretched. Fabriano allows the colors to be easily lifted and gently blended.
