Great job on the Golden, especially the color in the eyes and nose. Have you ever tried working with acrylics? I have painted quite a few Goldens and always struggled with color and creating the illusion of soft flowing layered hair. I like what you have done here. Unfortunately, I am very unfamiliar with watercolor techniques. If you have the time, I did post a couple of golden paintings earlier this year in Fury. Scroll back two to 5 pages as they should be there along with several other paintings of different
eeds. Look for Bergina. Goldens are still my favorite dog to paint as I think they are so challenging to do well. I am amazed that this is your first attempt, wow.

However, I find oil is good for landscapes, portraits and abstract.
I revived the thread realism/impressionism to give you an idea of gradation and texture achievable with transparent water color. Although not directly related to animal portraiture may be useful. If you like I could attempt to describe my method... let me know if you want me to do that.
all the best... Bruce
