 Mock Photograph of Poodle

Memorial Portrait Details

Size: 11" x 14"
Medium: Watercolor
Breed: Standard Poodle (Champagne)

Name: Zoe




Update 1

Update 2

The basic sketch of the poodle with background lightly drawn.

I start to paint the lighter background first, then add the darker colors on top.

Update 3

Update 4

I can now draw the branches and paint them last since they are the darkest objects.

The complex background is pretty much completed. Now I start the dog's eyes.


Update 5

Finished Portrait-click to enlarge

I've softened the features and added most of the detail to the dog in this step.

A few more touch ups to the fur color on the body, face and head to complete the portrait!
