Painting my way through the alphabet—A

Her muzzle is turning a bit snowy, but this girl still loves her tennis balls. This is one of our grand dogs, Autzen. She was down for a romp on the acre a few weeks ago. The grass was wet and messy, but the dogs didn’t seem to care. They chased the tennis balls until they almost couldn’t walk any more.

I got a wild hair to paint my way through the alphabet. I figured this would be the best way possible to really get a feel for painting many breeds, colors and coats. How fortuitous that a grand dog started the project.

There are a couple of letters that I don’t have covered and I’ll be doing a model call to find those dogs to photograph and ultimately paint.
