Watercolor Memorial Dog Portrait - Golden Retriever Brandi - Painting Face Fur

The flowers still need more definition to add depth and realism but I needed to let the paper dry so I went back to painting fur.  I added more color in Brandi's face and continued to build up more depth.  Several areas of her body were also softened while other areas received more glazes of color.  Just a few minor tweaks needed on her fur and then I think her body will be complete.

Her nose and mouth need a few more layers to build up more of a solid form.  I will also do minor adjustments on her face to better capture her character and just refine her features a bit more.

Last but not least  I will fill in the bushes behind Brandi which should really help to add more depth to the field area.
