Sleeping Dog

Sleeping Dog - student project



Here is a little painting of a sleeping dog that I painted in one of my sketchbooks.  Instead of doing gold elements through digital art, I used a gold leafing paint pen to add touches of gold onto the painting.  For the dog, I did mostly wet on dry and for the background I tried wet on wet.  I attempted the whitespace technique on the dog although had many mistakes with it.  Lastly, instead of sketching the dog in regular pencil and erasing, I decided to draw him with a watercolor pencil (a tip I learned in the comments on a watercolor tutorial on Youtube).
