Paws on Grand is this coming Sunday and I wanted to get in a little dog-drawing practice (since I don't have a live-in life model any longer). But I also was wondering what medium I would use and what paper. So I got out the Kunst & Papier soft-covered sketchbook I tested and reviewed in June (item D in the photo of that post).

It's a nice size page (8.25 x 11-5/8 inches). Since I have all that page space and have been writing about and using Stabilo Tones I got some of the gray ones out and started sketching dogs on "Dog Whisper." (Man I miss having a dog around the house!) I did 12 drawings in an hour and 20 minutes, with the drawings taking about 5 to 7 minutes each and some down time in between each sketch.
