Ivy Times Two, finished
Here is my finished portrait of a sleeping collie, Ivy. I started this painting in tandom with Ivy’s owner, Roni Henning. See my post from October 21—awaiting Roni’s finished painting!
I was tempted to break out the white gouache for the fur, but did not use any (for the watercolor purists in us all). I may try masking fluid next time, but overall I’m pleased with the brushstrokes and Ivy feels furry enough. What do you think? I really enjoyed working on this painting, especially sharing the studio with a fellow artist, Roni.
