Work in Progress - Scottie in Alcohol Inks

I'm working on a few dog commissions I have this weekend.

White and black dogs are always a bit more challenging. They also allow
more opportunity to add color. The challenge with this Scottie is to add color but still have the fur read as white.

I spend a lot of time working through the colors using a small brush with just a bit of alcohol on it so I could get the effect of fur by wiping off some color and stinging it along into new areas.

Now to go back paint some more fur and to paint in the eyes and nose. Then to ink it up a bit for more definition.
