I am excited about this series! I love the first and second. You don't happen to have a Saint Bernard to paint, do you (we have three of the goof balls)? :o)

Michelle Smith said...

Thanks Elizabeth! Nope, we don't have any Saint Bernard dogs. They seem like they'd be a great breed. And they're so cute!

Wow!! great job Michelle, good lights and shadows. It´s a good idea posting every steps of your paintings. I wonder what you could made with Photoshop ;)

Michelle Smith said...

Thank you Juampa! Glad you enjoyed the step by step.

Thanks, Francho. Photoshop is such a great program, isn't it? It's amazing how much you can do with it. I find myself starting to look for the undo button when I make a mistake on a watercolor painting. Too bad it's not that easy. ;-)

You paint wonderful eyes - especially his left eye, where the sun shines on it.
