My Proposal

**Every day I will post a Quicksketch of a dog. In the future I may post longer sketches and paintings but for now... just a Dog A Day.
I will post it even if I'm not in love with it- I NEED to try and draw every day! ***Hopefully***

Sketches are all done on 18x24 newsprint with a Conte Pencil unless otherwise noted.
Click On images to make them larger and to see the detail!!

Constraints and Interests

Can you see the interest?

I ran out of time today to finish this drawing.
I haven't had the luxury of time lately... lots of things coming up and 
reasons/excuses to use for pushing this until the next day...

I want to work on this some more (shading etc) but the hrs got away from me...
Maybe later tonight......

Off to my Day Job!! 

(I've been going to school too- so lots going on)

Luck of the Irish

I missed St Patricks Day!

So here's my belated Irish Setter.
He was very sweet. One of the benefits of dogs sitting on a grooming table is they are confined to one area and are easier to photograph.
All the Setters where being groomed and their feet where tap dancing with anticipation of what was to come soon...

This was a darling little cocker at the meet the breed booth.
Just sat there on a pedestal being handsome.

Cotton Ball

I feel like I'm cheating with this one....
Just a cotton ball with a nose and tung.

This guy/girl was kind of done for the day when I spotted 'em at the dog show. 

All the dogs there where very nice with beautiful temperaments.

All Mouth

This Great Pyrenees was at the Meet the Breed booth.
Very soft and sweet.

Black Beauty

I saw this lovely gentleman at the dog show...
He had a beautiful, very shiny, black coat..

I hope to get into color soon. I may start painting some of the drawings 
I've done already on this daily blog so you might see some repeats coming up.

I haven't drawn for a few days and I can feel it in my drawings...

Here are 3 Otterhounds that where hanging out at the Otterhound Club booth at the 
dog show this weekend.

They where cute & a bit slobbery.

I think I might start doing some painting to get back into color.
Getting a bit bored with sketches and I'm not pushing myself as much as I should.
