Sunday Walk – Watercolor of a black dog in white snow.

Carl Little included this striking watercolor in his book, “The Art of Maine in Winter”, in company with images by Jamie Wyeth, Winslow Homer and Rockwell Kent.  On the surface, the painting can be enjoyed for its depiction of a black Labrador in the beauty of the Maine woods in winter.   On a technical level, the painting is a tour de force on the presentation of entire world with a nearly monochromatic palette.
