dog portrait by joanne jarry

Asleep or thinking dog thoughts?  I like how this deft watercolor by Canadian artist Joanne Jarry leaves it open for interpretation with this interesting vantage point.  Look at the crisp bluish shadow, and the way the brown fur is washed down to white to give modeling and highlight to the dog's form.  Beautifully executed.  Jarry does pet portrait commissions, and at her Etsy shop you can see a wide variety of them.
