Black and white dog in color

In my attempt to create every day - I spent yesterday evening and this afternoon drawing our puppy dog Sweetie Pie in a forest of colorful doodles.  I am working on my drawing skills - not a natural by any means.  Both the doggie portrait and the doodles are exercises designed to strengthen what skills I have.  The doodles are colored with Derwent Inktense pencils and then I went over them with a water brush.  There is another benefit to drawing and especially coloring - very relaxing!  The dog and the doodle outlines are done in ink.  Having a doggie again is extra work - but petting her is also very relaxing!
