I’ve been waiting to draw Alice for some weeks but puppies don’t sit still for too long. I final caught her curled up for a late afternoon snooze, and managed to finish most of the drawing before she rolled over onto her back, oblivious to the fact that she was the model for today.

    Shari- Love it. Just so you know, I look at your posts everyday and always enjoy them.

    This one reminds me of last night- I was at my watercolor class at the Art Students League of Denver and out in the 1st floor hallway there is an exhibition of class work consisting of drawings & paintings of dogs and horses, some with cowboys on them. They titled the little exhibition “Dog and Pony Show” which I think is great!

    Thanks, Tom

    • Glad you enjoy the posts Tom! I am always a bit reluctant to draw animals (maybe the kitsch factor of drawing puppies and kittens) but I draw what is around me every day and these days it is the dog. One of my heroes of dog drawing is David Hockney. Have a look at the paintings of his dachshunds if you can find some online.

    How did you ever manage to get a puppy to stay still long enough? Of course they do eventually need some shut eye! Well done!
