Working on Flapje the Swiss Berner Laufhund

Portrait of Berner Laufhund Flapje:
After drawing the contours I added the first layer of paint, starting with the background. Pieter, the client, preferred a brownish/ochre background that complements Flapje's eye color and markings, I totally agreed. Then I set up her face in coarse black and white swashes and let it dry.
I'll work ontop of this in semi transparent washes.

















After the first layer of paint was dry I added contrast and first details. I'll gradually refine the shading but will keep the individual bursh strokes visible to give it a lively appearance.
