'Smooth' Visits

Our son Frank is visiting, along with his dog Smooth, a husky mix.

Sofie and Princess, the Belgian draft horses, are keenly interested in this new creature. Smooth was nervous around them at first.

(Link to Facebook) When we get back home, he falls deeply asleep. I paint him in transparent watercolor, leaving the white areas and covering the surface with greys around the silhouette. 

I place those perspective strokes on the floor to help communicate the ground plane. The dark drybrush strokes on the fur come last.
