Dog Portrait, Virginia, “Stella”

Dog Portrait of Stella, in Colored Pencil and Watercolor

The challenge with this lovely gal was to correct the camera distortion and make her proportions look more realistic. She has such a pretty face, lovely eyes and soft looking fur –  I wanted to capture that as well as the contrast with the fall leaves in the background. I also love the story this portrait tells…you know she was just running through those leaves having a great time and she’s going to run through them again in just a minute.

For fun, I included her initial S on her tag, because Stella is just that special!
