Dog Walker with Briefcase

11 x 8.5" watercolor

Another of my efforts during the Alvaro Castagnet workshop, one he did a bit of "surgery" on during group critique. Apparently he thought my figure was wearing a suit, so he decided to emphasize this by adding a tie and a briefcase, because he thought the idea of a businessman way out in the WI woods to walk his dog was hilarious. Thereafter, he put a businessman in a suit in every painting he did "surgery" on. Although there was one poor student who got swim fins and a snorkel put on her figure, because AC thought it looked like an alien and he should at least convert it to a human in scuba gear.

  1. I really like the atmosphere and brush work in this one. I hope to paint stuff like this in my watercolor class!
