Watercolor Memorial Dog Portrait - Golden Retriever Brandi
I have kept the sketch quite loose at this point as I don't want to be locked in by any graphite lines as I want her fur to be wispy and soft and the dandelions to settle into the background and not look cut out. I had to laugh outloud after I posted this update. She looks ridiculously googely eyed right now as I darkened her left pupil at the top but not the right yet as the right one is obvious in the photo. I darkened the left just to remind myself of the placement. It will look so much better once the first few layers of paint are applied!
The completed portrait will be 22x28" in full color watercolor. Looking forward to seeing some color!
