dog study by sargent

thanks wikipaintings.org (public domain)
Sometime around 1925 John Singer Sargent dashed off this watercolor sketch of a woman and collie. Looks like he found the collie much more interesting.
I love how that pink tongue looks perfectly mid-pant, and how it plays off the pink ranges in the lady's hat.  Put your thumb over the collie's tongue and you'll see how lopsided the picture gets without it.
