This is Nova. This wasn't the best photo of him to show his breed but he was just having so much fun that I decided to paint it anyway. He is a West Highland Terrier and is always spotless white when he comes and always needs a bath before he goes home. I almost never have to give a dog a bath but this little rowdy guy just loves to get in the dirt. White coat and dirt make quite a mess. He is an active but loveable doggie.

This is a lesson from Cathy Johnsons book on watercolor painting. My class decided that they wanted to paint this and I figured I had better do it first so I could establish any pitfalls. I really didn't find any and it was a joy to paint since I don't often do landscapes. I love the clean way that Cathy paints.
