Painting can be intimidating, but it doesn’t have to be. With a few simple steps, you can learn how to paint a Boston Terrier with watercolors.

Whether you’re a beginner artist or an experienced painter looking for a challenge, this guide will show you the basics of painting your favorite furry friend. So grab your supplies, and let’s get started!

Boston Terrier Painting Steps

Step 1: Selecting Your Supplies

Before you start painting, make sure to select the right supplies. For watercolor paintings, it’s important to use quality paper so that your artwork won’t warp when it’s wet. You’ll also need some basic watercolor paints, such as yellow ochre and burnt sienna for the body of the dog and ultramarine blue for the eyes.

When selecting a brush, look for one that is made from either synthetic or natural fibers; both types are suitable for watercolor painting.

Finally, gather some reference photos of Boston terriers so that you can easily refer back as you work on your masterpiece.

Step 2: Sketching Out Your Boston Terrier

Once you have all of your supplies ready to go, it’s time to begin sketching out your Boston. Start by lightly drawing out the basic shape of the head and body in pencil onto your paper before adding details like the eyes and nose.

This will help you practice getting the proportions just right before adding any color. As you draw out each feature of your Boston, try to keep their personality in mind; if they were real what would their expression be?

Adding subtle details like twinkling eyes or floppy ears will bring life into your artwork and make it even more special.

Step 3: Adding Color

Now comes the fun part—adding color! Begin by layering thin washes of yellow ochre over the entire body until most of the pencil lines are covered up (but don’t worry if some still remain).

Then add darker washes of burnt sienna around areas like in between toes and along facial features like eyebrows and whiskers for added definition. Once those layers have dried completely, add pops of bright colors such as red or pink around their ears or chest area before finishing off with black accents around eyes and nose using either paint or ink pens depending on preference.

Finally, use small amounts of ultramarine blue in order to make those puppy eyes come alive!
