Three Steps to Paint a Sheltie

Step One...Mass your darkest elements to create a pattern that is connected not spotty. 

Step Two...paint in the midtones. Making sure that no color is darker in value than what has already been established in Step One. 

Step Three....add final washes and background. 

This painting is called A Sheltie for Kathy 
It is part of the pet friend series. It can be found HERE


  1. fabulous! and interesting: I always thought watercolors were painted light to dark - may have to try this way...
