Sueellen Ross is passionate about depicting animals that are dear to her. That passion shines through in her puppy paintings. She starts each one with a detailed graphite drawing, then uses India ink to fill in dark areas, watercolors to add color, and finally colored pencils to achieve texture and depth. The results are incredibly realistic works of art, in which dog lovers see the hearts and souls of their own dear companions. All of the frolic and whimsy that's barely contained in puppies is on full display in the charming paintings featured in this monthly calendar devoted to these sweet, playful, romping youngsters.
