watercolor child and pet portrait of girl and dog

"Clara and Pavlov," portrait on watercolor canvas, 12 x 12"

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! 🙂
