I added some plants to the background up against a fence:
Black-eyed Susans, mixed Caladiums (painted) and a Purple Hydrangea bush.
I used the New Simple Water brush to add color to the sky behind the fence.
The New Simple Water brush as you can see does NOT disrupt the painting in from of it! It is the same brush that can be used to add the green tint to sunglasses on a pair of finished eyes such as in my painting The Swim Party or add a bit of red to sky in my Early Morning Mist.

|Using Corel Painter Essentials 4, an digital art program, I started with the puppy painting it a mix of yellow ochre, lemon yellow and touches of orange. For Eddie's hair I started with copper. I used a fine camel brush and a tapered camel brush.|
