A Portuguese Water Spaniel takes a dive

This started to be a progress painting. I began with a photograph of my paper, embossed with a tear line. The next photograph is the finished painting. Not really the "in progress" progression I'd planned, but sometimes the paintings just can't wait to be born! One thing that did help me with this painting is that I had laid in a patchwork of color for a prior experiment that didn't turn out the way I'd envisioned it. Perfect for my diving dog, though! The technical details are that I've used a combo of watercolor, fluid acrylic inks, and Caran d'Arche water crayons. I like it, makes me want to jump in the pool with him!
