Grungy golden :: Chien grungy

Do not draw until you have a “vision”, then hold to that trying to recapture it always.
― Edgar A. Whitney

I have been revisiting Edgar Whitney’s book Complete Guide to Watercolor Painting and it is excellent — it goes through all of the required steps for achieving good watercolour paintings and more. I was lucky today to capture my grungy dog’s head as usually, when he notices that I am drawing him, he stops doing whatever he was doing  usually sleeping  and comes over to play with me.

Je suis en train de lire le livre de Edgar Whitney Complete Guide to Watercolor Painting et ce livre est très bon si l’on prend le temps de le lire. Finalement j’ai réussi à peindre la tête de mon grungy chien, que j’ai déjà essayé maintes fois, car lorsqu’il s’aperçoit que je le regarde il arrête de faire ce qu’il faisait  qui est habituellement de dormir  pour venir me voir pour jouer.
