A painting from my wife’s favorite picture of her dog, Krypto coming in from the snow. He was a good boy, and is dearly missed.

This painting was an experiment with underpainting in watercolor, which while it is a thing I absolutely adore, I usually forget about until I’m well into the painting itself. It’s such a fun technique, and it ends up unifying the painting, and giving you a strong value structure to work on from the outset.
