Thirty Paintings in 30 Days - Day 14

What can I say.....another dog. Meet 'Millie'  - just a little pooch looking a little miffed as it was too darned cold to go for a walk this morning!!

I did a very quick sketch just to get something down and then got out the paint. As you'll see from the final painting I didn't follow it exactly. It just gives me some ideas and a few guidelines to follow when I start painting.

A quick sketch to start with. 

Acrylic mixed media (graphite & water soluble crayon, stencil)
on 140lb cold press watercolour paper


  1. Love, love, love!!! Love that backgroune too :)

  2. She is a 'late' valentine! Wasn't sure about the background - so decided to leave it and decide in a few days. In 24 hours it has grown on me and will leave it. Glad to hear your thoughts on it Sheila.

  3. What a cutie, Janet!
    Love everything about this painting, the colors, the textures and mostly Millie!!!

    1. Thanks Martine - Millie is the star for sure - I enjoyed painting this very much!! Glad you like it too. I still remember that dogs are not at the top of your list :))
