This is another in the Walkies series although it originally started life intended for the Purrfect Nostalgia series. I completely messed the background up initially and ended up cutting around the woman and dog, glueing them onto a new watercolour page and adding a brand new background around them, so I suppose you could almost call this a collage of sorts!! It isn't an ACEO this time either as I wanted to do a sketch the same size as the mini canvases I bought, so I could hopefully then replicate it in acrylics, so this one is slightly bigger at 5 x 5 inches.
I started with an idea of a woman looking out a window with a cat at her side but after I drew the woman's victory roll hair-do a cat just didn't seem to belong so I found myself adding a dog instead. As it went along it evolved into the idea of the women passing time on a park bench, patiently waiting for her love to come back from war while her faithful spaniel is patiently waiting for her to take him for a walk!

This is my contribution to this week's Paint Party Friday which is my favourite time of the week for blog-hopping and discovering all the amazing and diverse artwork that each person brings along to the party!
