Best Friend Paintings: Watercolor Westie

It’s always a bit daunting painting something some truly loves. As much as i LOVE painting dogs, I always worry that I won’t capture the thing that makes her special to her people. I generally concentrate on the eyes and the muzzle. For me, that’s where the story is told. If I can get the eyes and the muzzle right, I have captured the essence of the creature.
