Rolo the Labradoodle
This is Gwen Card's gorgeous dog, Rolo, you may remember I have painted him before and he was my first watercolour sale as Gwen loved it and I sent it to her in Canada!!!
Here is the link to the painting http://judithfarnworthart.blogspot.co.uk/2012/04/this-picture-really-tickled-me-and-is.html
Its interesting to see how my style seems to have changed over the months since I did the first one..... I think I appear to have got a bit more "sophisticated!!! Not sure if that's a good thing or not but I do like how this has turned out... no drawing on this by the way..... less difficult than it might seem, once you have positioned the nose and eyes the rest is easy and to do that, I just measure with my fingers how far apart everything is then just make an odd mark. Painting loose like this means you don't have such defined edges anyway and all I'm trying to do is get a feel for him rather than a photographic image, so I hope Gwen likes and feels I have captured the "essence" of him!!
