Happy Hound

8.5x6 watercolor drawn yesterday and painting begun, then finished this morning before work.  In between commissions, shows, traveling, marketing, and other exhibits (mostly out of town) I'm busy doing a pet portrait daily to post on our dog and cat Tumblr blog, Bowwows and Meows.  Lately I've been experimenting using a nose from one breed and ears from a different animal and/or fur and hair colors.  The small portraits are designed to show an unusual angle or composition.  Support used here is ColorSketch paper with Daniel Smith pigments and is lightly tinted a pale yellow.
