I have officially declared the month of November, Paint A Dog Month in my little studio, and would like to paint or sketch 30 dogs this month. These may be notebook sketches, or watercolor sketches, small acrylics......
As I learn more in the painting world, I am at times a bit overwhelmed with all I want to accomplish. I find my time stretched too thin, as I dive into pet portraits, people painting, landscape work....so I thought.... maybe if I focus each month on ONE subject....so this month it is dogs! Join in if you like, I may not share all the practice work, after all the focus this month is dog work, not blog work....blog work will be another month!
A good idea to focus on one subject! I have a list of paintings I want to do too. This little pup is soooo lovely! Best wishes for your dog series!ReplyDelete
Glad you like him Judy. I may run out of dog photos before the month is over!ReplyDelete
What a beauty!ReplyDelete
Will be watching for all your dogs - especially the one which appears on my birthday :) xx
He is so sweet, what a lovely dog -portrait!ReplyDelete
Thank you Pat and Jane too, glad you like this one. I think the pup was an Australian Shepherd mixed with a Jack Russell, wonder what he will look like when he grows up?ReplyDelete
Pat what day is your birthday?!
He is adorable. Oh I'm so glad I can't see him in person,I'd have to take him home. wonderful idea. I will enjoy peeking in on your doggie month! love,DianaReplyDelete
Such a wonderful portrait. I love the looseness and you really captured the soft fur.ReplyDelete
Glad that you like him Diana and Theresa, Good thing hubby was with me, or I may have taken him home....ReplyDelete
It looks so great!ReplyDelete
last day in November, Maria.ReplyDelete
Funnily enough, being a jack lover, I though I could see jack in him :) xx
Thanks Atelier, Pat, I suspect this will be a very smart dog when she grows up! Any big celebrations planned for your birthday?ReplyDelete
