" Devlin & Callie "


7  x  9  Watercolor pencils

This is Devlin and Callie for Liz Holm moleskins on The Flying Moleskins project. Her theme is portraits and the one done by Dana of her mom is so beautiful..... so mine went to the dogs !!!
 I am a dog lover and these two are so cute it was such a pleasure to draw them.
I haven't used my watercolor pencils in a while and thought it would be the perfect medium for these 2 pups.

They turned out great! So alive and yet drawn, no photography style for sure. Lovely guys!

Apparently we have both gone to the dogs. I always use guache but really like the texture you achieved with the watercolor pencils.
I am going to give them a try, though it's hard to teach an old dog new tricks. I can't believe I just wrote that. I apologize. It is late.

Beautiful work, Dominique! I love the softness to these doggies too. The expression on the black & white dog's face is priceless. Beautiful dogs and more beautiful painting. Love that your daughter wrote that note and took a photo for you. How awesome is that?

DEB said...

Very nice Dominique! They look like they are ready for the winter snows, for sure!
