Coco the Black Pug – Watercolor Painting Commission WIP – Update 4 by Krista Hasson | Dec 3, 2010 | watercolor, works in progress | 10 comments I am still working away on Coco, it is amazing how many layers it takes to get the depth that is needed. She is coming along well and will be done soon 🙂 Shares Like this:Like Loading...

Je vous félicite car il devient de plus en plus beau.Bisous Jeanette on December 3, 2010 at 9:33 pm This is wonderful. I love the perpetually perplexed expressions that pugs seem to have. Building layers slowly get the depth you need and you're doing so beautifully. This will be a stunning portrait. Christiane Kingsley on December 3, 2010 at 9:33 pm Coco is so cute! I really like how you have the light coming from the right hand side of the painting while the left hand side is a lot more in shadows. This really makes Coco's eye/expression be the focus of the painting. So very well done… Carol Blackburn on December 3, 2010 at 9:33 pm Yes, she is coming along beautifully. You must have a lot of patience. Krista Hasson on December 3, 2010 at 10:56 pm Thank you Carol, Christiane, Jeanette and Martine. It is funny because I never feel like I was a person with a lot of patience (especially with other mediums) but when I really keep track of how many layers I use to get the results I am after in watercolor I am always shocked at how much was put into the painting and I wonder where I got the patience to do it (but at that point it is done)lol. But I love it! 🙂 Art with Liz on December 13, 2010 at 6:47 pm I need to learn from you – building up layers in watercolour. This is Great! How many more layers are you going to do? Carol Andre' on December 13, 2010 at 6:47 pm Love her, what a sweet face. Gary Keimig on December 13, 2010 at 6:47 pm what a great look. Who could resist this charmer. Krista Hasson on December 13, 2010 at 6:49 pm Thank you Gary, Carol and Liz (I will do a few more, she is really close to being done)🙂 Have a great night everyone! Katherine Thomas on December 31, 2010 at 6:56 pm I adore this face! The owners are going to be so delighted with your work! It's wonderful!
