Bobby the Springer Spaniel watercolour picture


I started this one on Tuesday 27-10-15  and completed it tonight 30-10-15.

Prints of this are available here at fine art america

I’d been wanting to try to paint something like this as I really do love these dogs, as much as I’m a crazy cat lady, if there’s one dog I’d have a soft spot for it would probably be Springer Spaniels, or Spaniels of any kind really.  Well other than Rottweilers, which are my complete favourite, but that’s a different story.

The reasoning behind this is that Springer Spaniels are working dogs and the one that made it’s way into my affections in the first place is the lovely, amazingly well trained one that works on a farm run by relatives of mine at Lacey’s Family Farm. I guess I just like ones I know to be well trained.

The reference photo for this came from paint my photo, a link for it is here 

For this painting I used my Koi water colours pocket field sketch box and the paper I used was Winsor & Newton 140lb cold pressed A4(297mm x 210mm)  watercolour paper.
