Focus on Textures in Watercolor
I painted these hounds a while ago, and yes, they really did have those lanky, long legs. I used watercolors and acrylics for this one. The dogs were fun to paint and I was consciously trying to paint the three dogs on the left as a "mass" in order to create interest and variety as compared to spreading 6 dogs across the page. The rusty, iron gate and the weathered wood are what gave me the most fun, because I love to paint textures of all kinds.
