Watercolour on Canvas
I have had a very distracting few days that have kept me from my painting anywhere as much as I love. I have however finished a birthday gift for my son (it is a surprise but as he doesn't read my blog it is safe to share). This is Kleo his 13 year old German shepherd who I know will not be around for much longer and I wanted him to have a memento. I tried to capture her "old eyes" and hope he will be pleased with this. I have painted this on a Fredrix watercolour 16" x 20" canvas and have added some coats of varnish. I have only tried painting on this surface a couple of times and it does take a bit of patience as adding layers easily disturbs the underneath. The appeal of course is it does not have to be framed.
