Oh how I love painting puppies!!  Their sweet little faces and expressions are perfect for ink and watercolor!  With this little guy, I started with India ink and a super fine nib - I want those curly lines to be soft as they skip over the texture of the paper.  Next, I come in with the same kind of curly strokes with watercolor to add texture to the coat.  In this way I continue until that beautiful coat takes on life and dimension. I finish with my fountain pen and water soluble ink, adding water to blend a little.  Really love the process!
