Sunday and Monday’s journal: how do you paint a black dog?

Sunday we went to Colonial Williamsburg for a short time, and I thought the entrance to this basement bookstore would be fun to try. I love Mermaid Books… it is nicely crammed with lots of “vintage” books. (My favorite kind!) And, it is hidden away in a basement!




Today I went in to work for some interviews, and paperwork I had to get done. That didn’t sound fun to draw, so I drew Clara, my one year old newfoundland “puppy”. (At 120 pounds, it’s hard to think of her as a puppy!) She is solid black and in photos is often just a black blob with pretty eyes.



(How do YOU do black animals? Any tips to share?)
