Black Pug

Here is the secret:
When painting black dogs (or cats) start on a piece of black background.  Then add the details!  Not that it saves time, but it is like Michaelangelo said about sculpting a horse.   (I freely translate:) "Just take a block of marble and carve away everything that does NOT look like a horse."

It works great as a technique as he/she is a lovely little pug.
