In this stage, I have painted the nose - and then the darker pattern on the face.
Maisie has two colours to her coat, a yellow/tan and a grey .
So to paint these, I made sure to have the two necessary mixes made and ready. The yellow mix was quite wet and the grey stickier.
This is because the yellow gets laid in first, then the grey is added whilst the wash is still wet. Because it is stickier than the yellow, there will not be cauliflower run backs. I'm sure most of us have seen those. They are not welcome in my dog paintings!
