It's a Puzzlement.

I would like to paint these guys.  They're my sister's kids.  I have a scene from Red Rock Canyon in progress and I thought I'd start a small painting of the dachshunds.  I thought I could just draw them right off the bat on a 1/4 sheet of watercolor paper.  I started my drawing and immediately had to erase.  As you know, too much erasing is not very good for your paper:)  I decided to do a couple of drawings in my sketchbook until I get a feel for it and then draw on the watercolor paper.  Anyhow, aren't they precious?

Bonjour chère amie,

Il ne faut pas te décourager... Si tu ressens l'envie forte de les peindre, tu vas y parvenir. Je comprends cette tentation, ils sont merveilleux ces deux coquins de toutous !

Gros bisous 🌸

Candy said...

Merci Martine. J'aime que vous les appeliez des "coquins des toutous". Voilà la description parfaite!
câlins et bisous

They are beautiful. Good for you working on a painting. And sketching first is the way
to go. Can't wait to see the final work.

XOXOXOXOXOXO Barbara

Thanks, Barbara! I usually do a basic, very light drawing because I don't erase my pencil marks. I just lay the color on and leave it. I don't know why these babies gave me so much trouble:)

Hugs!

Hi Candy, doing a few sketches first works for me too when I'm tentative about a painting.
They're so adorable and it will make a beautiful piece.
All the best to you, Sue xx

Thanks, Sue! If I do a good job, I'm going to send it to my sister in Wisconsin. If not, it'll stay with me:)
