Shetland Sheepdog

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 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:

Gold Ochre

Ultramarine Blue

Burnt Sienna

Quinacridone Magenta

Paynes Grey

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.

So, here’s to you Laddie, you were a sweet boy.





      1. Sounds like a plan & thank you, Helen. We’re suppose to get a lot of rain later today, and also tomorrow…making Saturday morning my goal for a hike. 😊
