I have a problem.
I paint dogs, cats and other furry things, but when I receive a photo of a particularly hairy breed I have a momentary lapse of confidence. You see, hair is difficult to paint. Especially with watercolor and especially on Yupo.
I can paint labs and chihuahuas and wiener dogs all darn day. But given the challenge of painting anything a little more shaggy, well, I have to come up with a good plan.
Another thing? Shaggy dogs usually have hair over their eyes. But the eyes are my signature! So the plan usually requires a lot of liquid mask and even more artistic license.
To quote the A-Team, “I love it when a plan comes together.”
Yes, I just quoted the A-Team.
