Day 19 of 21: Restful

I love the way dogs rest. They look so comfortable in whatever pose. This is a painting of my friend's dog that has short hair over most of his body, but with tufts of long hair in the oddest places ... like on the top of his head, giving him a mohawk look. He is the cutest tho'! I felt like watercolor tonight after being inspired by other artists in cyberworld. Aren't art blogs great for inspiration? I suppose I could have darkened the background more, but I'm tired and this is about all I can do tonight. As always, comments and critiques are welcome! :)

Perfect as is! And I like the tufts of hair and the additions of just the hint of pinks here and there.

I like the background as it is because he stands out against it very nicely. Gorgeous!

This is really lovely. The colors are quite striking - an unusual palette but it works so well.
