I seem to be working out of my spurt of people sketching (though I'm still doing a lot of that). I've started a new series, "Dogs with Attitude." I'm not sure if I'll end up using the sketches that are coming up as paintings. (The title of this post is what I would call the painting if I made one.)
This one is a French Bulldog sketched with Faber-Castel Calligraphy pen. I had some old Lukas gouache that I wanted to use up so I slapped that on the background. (I don't recommend Lukas gouache. I purchased some long ago based on an ad in an art materials catalog. I find it has a very chemical smell and doesn't blend well with the way I work. I hated the working qualities so much I didn't do research into the pigment quality. I would check into it before you invest. It is very opaque and if you like that.)
I'm STILL seeking a local (Twin Cities Area) French Bulldog for a sketching model. If you have, or know someone who has, one that I can sketch please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
