WOW... wonderful work!
Thanks so much Sheila!!!
Love the subtle color in this. The stripes add so much, without taking away from the dogs.
Thank you Cris. I thought that the strip helped lead the viewers eyes around the painting!
I love this! You nailed the expressions. I'm working on using watercolor on wood panels similar to your technique.
Elisha, I could find your site to see your work! I would love to see how you are using your wood panels with watercolor
It is elishadasenbrock.com, thank you for asking, however I don't know if I posted the painting I did there. Here is the link to a picture of my first try:http://tinyurl.com/k47wkxj
Great expression in both pups - I think it's amazing that you keep the rest of the panel so free of paint - how do you do that? This must have taken you a long time to paint that fur. Paint on!
Hey Pattie, Thanks so much!! It is hard to keep the paint off the wood panel and sometimes it feels like it hinders me but I have found that I can sand the acrylic or oil off. It does lighten the wood a bit but you can make it work. I have thought about actually staining the wood, maybe when I am done painting and the paint is dry
So sweet! Another wonderful piece!
Thanks you Mary!!!
This is awesome. Really like how you incorporated the dog colors in the couch. Wow, can you do this in a day?

Thanks everyone for your kind comments! Pattie, to answer your question, I underpaint in acrylic to act as a gesso and then overpaint in oils. If I get any paint on the pure wood panels, I will sand it off, even when it is wet. It seems to work well. Nelvia, I do paint 8 plus hours a day on my painting but yea, this one took longer than a day!
Wonderful! I look forward to seeing more of your work on G+
Both dogs are beautiful!! Love the fir especially on that Labradoodle....wow!!
