Desi II

Eyes and nose. You knew that's where I'd start, didn't you?

Did you know though, that each time I paint a dog, I sing to them softly?
My painting is so much better when I feel a connection .

This time I was singing to Desi.. " the charm about you, will carry me through.. to Heaven. I'm in Heaven"

A happy song for a happy little dog..

  2. I will, Katherine.

    If you're shopping for watercolours, one piece of advice - don't skimp on the paper! You can use cheaper brushes and student quality paint - but cheap paper is a nightmare and will ruin your efforts.
    I use Arches 140lb Rough.

  6. No way, Francesco - that isn't bad English at all. (do you prefer to be called Franz?)
    You said I was good and I was delighted to hear it. Sometimes I doubt if I am good or not.
    And your English is much, much better than my Italian !
    I learned some in Calabria, when I was in hospital there. But not enough to converse as well as you. So please, never apologise.
    Ciao xx

  9. Capisco Francesco, il tuo inglese è scolastica. Ma è molto facile da capire.
    Io non sono di essere gentile, ma veritiero. Mi ha fatto piacere leggere la mia pittura si pensa è buono, perché a volte non ho fiducia.
    Si può essere felici di sapere, è mi ha spinto a tentare di nuovo imparare l'italiano, quindi non sarà necessario utilizzare il Traduttore di Google.

    Ciao, Pat xx
