Woody Dog (JRT)

5.5x8.5 gouache and ink line on Masters paper done today for a WetCanvas Weekend Drawing Event hosted by Kathy.  Woody is her dog.  We were to complete a painting in 2 hours or less and this one is 1 hour plus 10 minutes to draw with Micron 01 pen.  We decided to do a tribute to fellow artist Deano who passed away last week, a wonderful guy and contributing painter on the site. His blog, Deano's Den Gallery, is a memorable way to view his work.  He always did 5x7 oils with red underpainting, so this Jack Russell terrier has a red gouache first layer.  Rest in peace, Deano, you are missed and the world is a little less colorful now.
