Rainey waits patiently for me to throw the stick

Welcome to my new Blog!
My name is Shelley Lampman and I'm an artist living on beautiful Whidbey Island.
This first painting is a watercolor sketch of my Australian Cattle Dog Rainey.
I tried a new technique inspired by amazing watercolor artist Belinda Del Pesco. I did a graphite sketch first then did the watercolor painting over that. I really enjoyed the dimension
it added and look forward to
trying it again.

Thank you for looking Steve - I miss you too!

And thank you Brooke - without you we never would have found our way to Rainey. We are the lucky ones, she's an amazing and wonderful girl. I hope all is well for you there in Texas.
