Sunshine Yorkie Terrier #01, Original Painting, 9 x 12 inches on 140lb Watercolor Paper


Tiny dog. Big attitude. Mia is a bouncing, curious and bright troublemaker who brings a smile to everyone’s face. I used bold lines and vivid colors to try and capture her personality. By using the solid ink Derwent Inktense sticks on Arches watercolor paper, I was able to get a wide variety of line quality and create washes as well.

This piece was made on high quality 140lb watercolor paper using watercolor washes and ink washes with layers of Derwent inktense block art sticks layered on top. And layered again. And again.  I always am careful to create make sure my work is well made and durable. Inks are very durable and long lasting and these are pigment rich. Size: 9 x 12 inches, matted to 11 x 14. Medium: ink.



Meet Mia, the tiny dog with an outsized personality that seems ready to leap off the paper! I was inspired to capture the sheer exuberance of this bouncing, curious, and brilliantly mischievous troublemaker. Mia is no ordinary pup; she’s a pint-sized bundle of energy that brings an instant smile to everyone lucky enough to encounter her.

With bold strokes and vivid colors, I aimed to capture Mia’s zest for life. Using the incredible Derwent Inktense sticks, I harnessed the intensity of solid ink sticks on luxurious Arches watercolor paper. The Inktense sticks allowed me to play with a rich variety of line qualities, from sharp and defined to playful and whimsical.Each stroke tells a tale of the tiny dog with a big attitude, leaving viewers captivated by the vibrant energy radiating from the artwork
