When we were in Detroit, I visited Blick Art Supplies and, wow, I was like a kid in a candy shop! I could not decide what I wanted to buy. So I took my time and only purchased supplies I know I cannot get here. My best find was hot pressed water color paper (2 for 1). While I was there I got a hard cover sketch book and today I dug it out. My finger is on the mend so I have decided to dive right in to some serious!!!! art. As a start, I opened the sketch book and just drew.
Bijou was sleeping on Steve's chair so he seemed a logical subject. I have never really sketched an animal before but I just looked and drew. I tried to keep my eyes on the dog and not so much on the paper and I am pretty happy with the result. Could be a bit better with the shading - A LOT BETTER, IN FACT - but as a first effort he is OK and kind of cute.
I found such relaxation in the sketching that I might need a bigger purse (so my sketch book can come everywhere with me).
Thanks for visiting!
