Since I am still busy with the jewelry making side of things, here are 3 drawings I did back in the winter.
The "Dalmatian" evolved, covering up an old image in my sketchbook and it kind of took over what was underneath. I say this because I just noticed a nose poking itself through. hummm.
crosshatch, line ,chalk charcoal.
a brief little pen and ink sketch in an acrylic ink, of a "Loyal Dog looking to his Master".
and one, of our smallest dog "Pirate", waiting to go somewhere... anywhere, please!... as long as he is with a master-type human being, he is ready.
...for this little drawing, I smudged charcoal over the page and wiped the excess off with a cloth, so that it made a smooth gray starting point.. then started the drawing by using an eraser to define the shape. I added the color for emphasis. a fun way to work... but it wasn't really work.
