LABRADOR RETRIEVER WATERCOLOR ART BY SHEILA WEDEGIS
I have been doing alot of sitting with my leg up and watercolors have been a wonderful way to continue my artwork. I call it backwards thinking from oils. In painting with oil paint, you put your highlights on last. Not so with watercolor. You need to plan almost every move.
This piece is image size 14 1/2" x 7 1/2" on 300lb cold press watercolor paper by Fabriano. I will be matting it, maybe a double mat. It just brings the piece out so nicely. The finished size will be 20 x 13. If you would like me to frame it also I would be happy to do that just adding a bit extra for that.
I hope you enjoy my journey into watercolor. I'd love to hear from you!
PS, wanted to add the origianl has warmer tones. It's so difficult some times to get the correct color in photography. At least mine. :-) when I'm the photographer!
