Above: Another practice dog sketch. Pentel Pocket Brush Pen and gouache on a 9 x 12 inch spread in a Fabriano Venezia journal. This book doesn't fit on my scanner. The cast shadow by the spine would have made knitting the spread together in Photoshop more time intensive than I could spare, so the vertical line at the center right is the gutter of the book and true center, the vertical line at the center left is the edge of that scan. The side edges also got cropped in a bit—his nose is actually all on the page—but just barely.)
It dawned on me that since it is often hot here in August and "Paws on Grand" is rain or shine, I should get more practice with dogs who are panting. So I set out to do just that.
