Nighttime Dog Snuggled in a Circle

Nighttime Dog Snuggled in a Circle is part of a series of four paintings of our new puppy, Coco, which we adopted from Paws. This painting was made during the summer of 2022.

This was drawn with Micron markets and Faber Castell brush markers on a 15″ x 11″ sheet of watercolor paper. Acrylics were then used to layer color over the drawing until it was richly colored in a way that couldn’t be replicated digitally. I developed this process over the last twenty years, where I learned that thin layers of color create a much more vibrant “glow” than a single thinker layer of paint.

This is a very high-res jpeg with about 9,000 pixels resolution horizontally. It can be blown up and projected to a gigantic size or printed 30″ wide.
