Today’s Watercolor – German Shepherd Puppy

Actually, this was finished a week or so ago, but it was a gift so I couldn’t post it. This is my friend Mary Ann’s German shepherd puppy, Sable. The watercolor was commissioned by Mary Ann’s very generous Secret Santa, who shall for now go unnamed. Mary Ann was being good, and had left it wrapped and under the tree, but the Secret Santa couldn’t stand it any more and sent a message saying, “Open it, dammit!”

I love the colors in this shot and the backlighting effects especially. It was such a nice photo to work with.
