Wirehaired Dachshund

Ch Kanix Hilda At Stargang - 20" x 16" watercolour

I thought it might be fun, following my posting of a Longhaired Dachshund, to show a dachshund with a different coat. I hope you can see that the coat on this dachshund is somewhat shorter and rougher than the previous one! It is a Miniature Wirehaired Dachshund for those unfamiliar with the breed.

As usual, if you have any questions, please email me at info@azpaintings.com

This is wonderfully detailed, Anne!

A very stately portrait!

I think that a wirehaired coat is quite difficult to show correctly in watercolour and it's more often than not shown as rather soft and luxuriant. If you've ever handled a wire coat, they are harsh to the touch and I hope I've managed to convey that in this painting.
