My Benji


18x12 watercolors

The painting is of my dog Benji who is a living watercolor. He is tricolored and I thought the darks and lights in this photo would make a good painting.He is hard to paint because he has so much undefined hair.He is my pride and joy

  1. I love this painting of Benji! You've captured that "I've been a good boy, may I have a cookie" look! Who could resist giving him a treat and a smooch! Love the colors and the softness in his fur.

  2. Hi Silvia, thanks for leaving a nice comment on my blog! I think this image is precious and so very well painted. You have a very good feel for the medium, which I think is the hardest to master.

  3. Thanks for your comments on my blog, they don't appear right away I have to moderate them so I don't get any unwanted comments on my blog.
    Love your doggy painting, watercolors are so hard, I have found, yours are lovely.
