Finally finished the portrait of my daughter Clara and our dog Pavlov. This is the first and last time I’ll ever attempt to paint watercolor on canvas. Unfortunately I forget what brand watercolor canvas it was – I think Fredrix. I had a very hard time achieving the depth of tone I wanted, and the paint often seemed to wash off with subsequent layering. I like the watercolor boards a lot better!
But I am glad to have caught my daughter’s affection for Pavlov! 🙂
This a very affectionate, loving portrait. A really valuable gift to yourself for Mother’s Day?!!
Thanks, Linda! Yes, I suppose it is!
I tried canvas one time, also. I’m leaving that to the acrylic and oil painters. This is beautiful and soft, Anne. Love it!
Thanks, Leslie. I’ll second that. I think I have one or two more in the closet – sounds like a good excuse to drag out the oils!
Beautiful. I can only imagine how much better it looks in person.
