Alice eats bugs

Alice appreciates being outside these days as much as I do. But drawing a dog outdoors is a lot more challenging than the usual “sleeping dog after a walk” sketch session. Positions shift constantly, people (and other dogs) go by on the street, and bugs must be eaten. But, like people in motion, dogs in motion generally come back to the same pose eventually, and with some stop and start, the drawing ends up getting completed.

    Good Evening dear Shari,

    Alice is very fortunate to be your model many times.

    Hope you are paying enough in kind of love and care taking.

    Super sketch. I usually find they often return to the same position, but usually with their entire body facing a different direction. lol


  8. Cute dog I like the expression in the eye and the position of the legs. It looks like she was running for a while then got tired out.
