I have a commission to do a watercolour painting of two dogs and I am perfectly terrified!  Any other artists out there that sweat over doing commissions?

Not a sweet landscape or a flower but someones treasured and loved pets.  I have tipped toed around the drawings and finally took the plunge today.  This is the start of the first puppy.

Starting the puppyShe is looking kind of Zombie like but here goes with the eyes and nose.  More personality that way.  I find it better if the eyes are in, like they are watching me.   Also adding some more layers of shading.PuppyNext comes some brush strokes to show the fur.  This little one was fun.  It’s not finished but I feel I made a good start.Almost complete
