Dog Days—Part VI: Spatters Everywhere

At the end of June I put up some "spatter dogs." I have a lot of fun doing this, but I have to say my wardrobe is very colorful! Even watercolor is difficult to wash out of cotton.

You can see one of the previous batch of spatter dogs here. That was on a more textured paper and I think I really like what the texture of Arches Text Wove does to the calligraphy pen in that other batch; but I do like the way the pen squeaks away on this paper.

    Thanks Miss T., the other day I was turning of Raymond onto Como to go towards the Fairgrounds and I saw a man walking a black and white French Bulldog into the U Married Student Housing area; and if I had been able to pull over I would have run after him!!! I’m thinking of putting up signs on the telephone poles. My obsession is taking over!

    Thanks Jules. Dogs have such personality. I just adore them. I get to see dogs for sketching on Saturday, Sunday, and Monday coming up, and I’m so happy I can hardly sit at the computer!!!!

    Laura, they are! He’s like a helicopter dog! Thanks for stopping by. I’m off today in search of more pups, near Wisconsin (to sketch, not live with). But my fascination with these little dogs is beginning to make me wonder…
