Stella's portrait update

I'm working on painting all the little details now and continuing to tweak the background as I go.

First stages of Stella's portrait

 I am nearly 10 hours into this large commissioned portrait of a pretty brindle mixed-breed dog named Stella. Almost everything is blocked in now and I've even started adding some fine details.

This is one of a set of two 16" X 20" paintings for Stella's owner. I couldn't have asked for better reference photographs for these pieces.

Two more watercolor cartoons

 I've painted a couple more watercolor dog cartoons to practice in my new style.
This is Baxter and Molly, two of the dogs I grew up with.
