  1. Oh hahahahaha! What a delightful surprise! When that popped open, I just laughed. A wonderful dog face, and the raven looks pretty startled too. Maybe even a little indignant. I especially love the way you have brought the same color back into the mix to use on the dog. Working with a limited palette like that is very powerful. Are you also fleshing out the story that accompanies these drawings so they can become a book one day? Wondering…..on the other side of the looking glass, -D.

    • Thank you for laughing. I sort of grin when I look too. I’ve been using just a few colors throughout this series. One of my watercolor teachers taught me the limited palette and it works here too. Thanks for being on the other side of the glass.

  2. Love this Donna, so cool with the dog’s head magnified – love that raven too! As a proud Mommy owner of a hound (beagle/basset mix)they are some of the best detectives!

  3. Very nice work Donna. I love your take on this and your beagle is wonderful. (I used to have one . . . Have a Basset Hound now . . . Love both breeds, but Bassets are my faves). You captured the hound beautifully!

    • Thank you Cynthia. One of these illustrations I will work in my Scotties. The fox hound emerged a few drawings ago. At first he was a character to be feared, but in this drawing, he is charming and naive.
