Here is the original photo of Paul, his wife Alison and their dog James:
And here is the watercolor that I made, based on the photo.
Obviously, I pumped up the colors a lot for this, but I also played with reality a bit and turned James's head and got rid of his harness, to make things a bit more picturesque. This was a lot of fun to work on because Paul and Alison are great friends!
Next week's theme (for real this time): Blood!
