This morning my 11 year old son commented: “I like the pen sketch because that one actually looks like a dog. The other one just looks like a blob. ”
I continued to work on the watercolor then asked, hopefully, “How about now? Does it look more like a dog?”
“Whoooooah,” he replied, clearly impressed, “now it looks even less like a dog”.
Just now I added some pen to the watercolor and, in my opinion, it now looks quite dog-like.
