The sweet and loveable Sheltie.
I came across this photo via a tutorial on painting long fur. The tutorial was posted by Louise Di Masi on her YouTube channel https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dkwq35ZIaus where she referenced a photo taken by Jackie Lou. I have included the photo below with the link to Pixabay for a free download.
Painted on Arches 300 lb, 10 x 14 Cold Pressed watercolor pad using the following watercolors:
I mixed my own black using Ultramarine Blue and Burnt Sienna
We had a collie that had similar markings when we were kids on the farm. I believe he came to live with us after Shannon the Golden Retriever passed away. https://art-for-arts-sake.com/wp-admin/post.php?post=2425&action=edit
