Dogs portrait tutorial in watercolour & extra-soft pastels - golden retriever - YouTube Video
Yes, I completed the watercolour stage of this artwork after 18 videos.
However the work wasn't completed. It still 'called to me,' telling me things that were needed.
I enthusiastically switched over to using half a dozen extra soft pastels and I tested out several blending tools. I'll get the edit for that part of the artwork to you next week. I take this part of the week, to write my blog, create my YouTube video/s and perhaps share short posts with you, but the coming video to bring the artwork to this stage is a longer one.
I love the combination of watercolour with a touch of extra-sot pastels for the completion of figurative work in the landscape I have been working this way for decades. What do you think? Do you like combining art mediums?

Gold, is a richly drawn, evocative, stand-alone novel.
ORPHANED, BETRAYED, and DETERMINED, Jane Mutta's adventures lead her to the 1850s Australian gold rush and encounters with (highwaymen) bushrangers. Amidst the dangers, there are rocky entanglements on a coach and steamship with the explorer Douglas Fife. To survive, she will need all her resources.
Something different in the way of romantic historical fiction. This is an adventure through humour and historically tragic events. It is more than historical romance — judge for yourself; Miss Mutta breaks stereotypes.
From an Australian bestselling author comes stories of determination to find one's place in a world that men are threatening to tear apart.
