Schnauzer, complete

"Mini Schnauzer"6" x 6"watercolor

I've decided this one is done, but the more I look at it I think I'm done because I've overworked it, not because it is sucessful...  I really enjoyed painting this one, but its hard to find that edge between, fresh yet accurate and overworked but not quite right.  Oh well, just keep painting...

progress, process

Today I painted a little schnauzer, and boy, did I enjoy the process.  It was just a picture I found, no expectations, no deadline. Just a cute face and a limited palette. 

I'm not quite done yet.  I need to adjust the pattern of lights and darks, and maybe add a little more color, but overall, I like it.

Here is it, with another dog-in-progress...

I really like the sketchy-ness of this larger one, and am being very tenative so as to not overwork it.

setting up to sell

I have decided to try out the "Daily Paintworks" auction function to sell my work.  I am not sure if I set it all up correctly, so this is somewhat of a test...

So today I'm listing this painting:
