Above: journal sketch I made from one of the photos I took at the indoor dog park at the Metrodome. Pentel Pocket Brush Pen and Holbein gouache. I was using Holbein gouache because I have some I'm trying to use up on my studio palette, and because, as I say on another journal page not shown in this post, "I wanted garrish colors." l also wanted heavy opacity. This journal page had a text page from a mystery book pre-pasted across the gutter and the quotation was something I wrote down at lunch, but it does work well with the image in a weird kind of way! The journal pages are about 6.5 inches square. Click on the image for an enlargment. (If you are able to read my writing on this page you'll see that the snow storm we had on Monday meant the postponement of a class I was teaching and I ended up painting five page spreads in the "extra" 2 hours.)
Yes there were bright lights, fast movement, and lots of noise at the indoor dog park the other day. And yes I didn’t get anything resembling a finished drawing. But now I have a plan! I am practicing before the next date: February 3 (6 to 9 p.m.; people are free, $1.00 for a dog).
