watercolor pet portrait: sasha

My friend Lisa commissioned a portrait of Sasha, her cousin Sara's dog. Sasha is a pit-mix, and thoroughly adorable.

For Sasha's portrait, I was working from the photo above right. Of course, the harness and leash were not anything special, so I did not include those in the portrait. Also, I felt the background was a little heavy on the bricks with the ground and wall being brick, so I kept the bricks on the ground and just did a high-pigment color wash on the rest.

I just love this black-nosed pit mix's little face - it is just too cute. Actually, Sasha's face reminds me of Sweet Pea's a little.
