All I can think of is Castaway and a bloodied Volleyball just thinking the name, but no, this one is a Dog with a tale. Described as an SPCA special he was a delightful looking dog full of character. His life came to a sudden end when he was mauled to death at a doggie day care center. The friend I'm doing this for is a good friend of the owner. We spoke about what she wanted (she is a painter herself but not confident enough to try this one) and we decided on a 16 x 20" image on clayboard. I started with an image we liked then made some changes to the ear and added some paws! I'll do a trial on a 5 x 7 poster board with CI and Golden high flow. I cut out Wilson, positioned him on the card and sketched in some other details.
