cavalier king charles spaniel russian toy terrier mix dog watercolor painting blue purple bluejaybay

Zoe is the big sister of Layla the chocolate lab.  She is believed to be a mix of a Russian toy terrier and a Cavalier King Charles spaniel, and she’s smaller than my cat. This was a challenging dog to paint in the binary portrait technique!

Zoe is tan and black with long wispy ears and shorter fur on her head. I chose to paint this using a new-to-me Winsor & Newton purple paint mixed with French ultramarine blue. This is my new Purple-Ultramarine color scheme.
