While Plein-air Painting with a friend in Hope Valley, I had the change to photograph a Dog that was having so much fun playing in the water he made me laugh! He actually was looking for fish! They would slap the water, or jump, and he would get so excited! I got some good pictures, and did a compelte drawing to the size I wanted to paint. Then I began with a watercolor underpainting on Uart Paper, which I love!
