Dog Watercolor Painting Labrador Retriever

One more holiday commission finished! I have two more to do for a total of 5 in about 2 weeks. I have learned never underestimate the time it takes to paint a black dog (or cat). I find that black is the hardest color to work with. I generally do an underpainting of blue then followed by a dark sepia. I use very little black and then only in the darkest areas. If you look hard, you can see some blue and the sepia.
