Daily Practice - How to Be a Cool Dog!

3:25 PM

Imagine my surprise and delight when I stumbled upon this lovely dog fountain! I just had to sketch it - for himself and for the 3 girls at home* that would've loved to have had a drink from it!
Hmmm, knowing Susie, she would have submerged herself in the fountain!

This is a watercolor sketch with black and white gel ink added in places to give a bit more definition to the water and to the cracks in the wall. Some of the colors are added in to The dog's head to make the rendering more vibrant and interesting. Otherwise, he really would have been a cool bluish colored dog!

This is one I will probably revisit in the studio once I get home* as I think there is more to this guy than what my sketch captures.

*This sketch is in preparation for An Imaginary Trip to Paris starting September 21st! The "trip" will be a sketching and painting holiday for those who join me! (I'm not really in Paris, darn it!) More information can be found at ImaginaryTrips.com!
