Watercolor painting of my friends dog
As some of you know, we moved here to beautiful Sonoma County California from the east coast. We didn’t know a soul here, but fell in love with the area. One of the first people we met was Nancy from the Home Depot. Moving into a new house, we practically lived at the home depot for the first year. Nancy manages the Women’s Do It Herself Workshop that we regularly attend there. It’s so much fun to build, tile and learn new things in this workshop and Nancy makes it all fun – it’s a great group of people – plus she makes some pretty awesome dessert! During the past several years I’ve known Nancy to do so many nice things for everyone (including us) that I felt like i wanted to do something for her. So one day when she posted a picture of her little dog named Stewie on facebook, I decided I would try to immortalize him with a watercolor painting.
Here’s a quick video I made of the process. I also did several tweaks to the eyes and mouth post filming which did not make it into the video, but at least you get an idea of the process. I love animals, so this was such a blast to do!
Have a great week!
Don’t forget to hug or smile at someone – be the good you want to see in the world….
Love everyone, even the haters – they need it most.
InJoy – Paint On,
