Finished & Framed Version of ‘Le Chien Qui est Coloré’

For my third art entry in the Westminster Kennel Club art contest my aunt @missmochitheyorkie (on Instagram!) texted me this gorgeous reference photo of her adorable yorkie, Mochi, for me to use as a reference photo:

Occasionally, I sketch out the figure first in either charcoal or pencil rather than figure it out with a thin layer of turpenoid:

The head is a bit too small in this initial layer

  1. It’s fun to answer questions from my awesome followers, shout out to friends, and share my unique melting pot of music.
  2. It reminds me that yes, I do need to add more tunes to my playlists.
  3. It’s live proof of my artistic talent/creativity.
