First Steps of the Miniature Painting for Little Chihuahua Paloma

Here are my first steps in the miniature painting (ACEO) for Paloma the little Chihuahua:

(Above) I have created a light pen and ink drawing, then added an India ink wash background.

12-19 7:00 AM (Above) I add that rich, blue, and delicious colored pencil over the ink wash background.

Paloma is a "final refuge" dog who is spending her final days at OldDog Haven . A portion of the proceeds from this painting will help Paloma and the other dogs at OldDog Haven

Melody, this is going to be beautiful! I hope you don't mind I mentioned you on my blog. I received the print from you of a black cat today - gorgeous! Coincidentally, I got a commission yesterday to paint two cats, one of which is black, so I'm drawing some inspiration from your work!
