Dog days, watercolour portraits

My handmade watercolours have been very busy over the last few months. I have been so pleased with the effects, what’s more the tiny bottle caps that I filled seem to last for ages, so I have not needed to embark on a second paint making session yet.

I had been asked if I could paint a couple of dog portraits, I am pleased to say that they are now finished, Rio the boxer is now with his mum and Jem will soon be with her mum and dad.

I had intended to do a work in progress, but forgot at the start of Rio, here are the ones I managed to photograph.

About REcreate-RebeccaEvansCreate

My name is Rebecca Evans, living in the New Forest I have been inspired to paint the many animals often seen around me. Having ridden since Childhood, painting equines was a natural path to follow. I use a variety of media, watercolour, oil, charcoal, pastel,inks, plus a few more, infact I will try most things. Choosing the medium to work with can really change the effect of the art, and therefore the character of the animal. Sometimes it is an instant decision, sometimes it is the mood from within me which determines which medium I choose to use. I never know what might inspire me next, but if it’s hairy, I will be sure to try.

  3. Very awesome work. I love how you’ve captured their expressions and how the fur is so realistic. Your work is the opposite of mine … my animal
    Portraits are mostly painted in purples and pinks!
