Alex in the Garden-Day 1

© Ellen Blonder
We're dog-sitting for about a week, so I think I'll paint Alex in the garden, although he was actually posing near my feet at the computer. It's hard to identify him as a Cairn terrier since he was shorn for the summer. He's impossibly cute and round; we've been told he has a much mellower disposition than many of his breed.

Lately, I prefer smooth surfaces to paint on, as opposed to canvas. This is a 16 x 16 sheet of masonite.
