Hi, I'm back inspired by artist/teacher Stapleton Kearns. I love his posts. He teaches as he posts such a well rounded teaching style. Lots of examples and explanations. I hope to be able to get back to his blog and add it to my list. It is almost June and I have been fighting shoulder/neck problems which have kept me from painting. Must overcome.
This dog is my latest commission. At first I thought he was the ugliest dog I have ever had to paint. Around his eyes and moth the color was soooo red. His body color was very hard to determine as in the picture it looked more purple than anything else. I had to kind of guess. Now I am waiting to see if the client likes it. Hope so as it is the best I could do.

This is Nova. Nova was adopted by a young girl in Newfoundland. He and his sister were left in a box along the roadside. He is a spirited, active fellow who delights his humans. Nova will be ready to head for Canada after Thanksgiving.

I have a complete set of Derwent Intensives, bought this smaller set to travel with. They have improved the carry wrap by putting a bottom flap so that pencils do not slip out. Big Plus! I add a few lighter wc pencils to make complete range of colors. I use a brush to hit the colors and paint. I rarely use them as pencils but the option is always there. A plus is that once dried the color does not bleed or pick up.
