I'll bet you're thinking,
Sharon and pet portraits?
Are you kidding me.
She's terrified of dogs!!!
But I can use a photo of a dog to paint a pet portrait.
I'm taking an online class on drawing and painting pet portraits.
Today we were working on values and different ways to draw a dog.
We worked on cats yesterday but I don't really have anything worth posting.
OK, so that's not a cat or a dog.
You're so quick.
It's a ribbon value, learning how to add value and shape to an animal.
Now for a dog.
This is about a 10 minute study of a photo I was working from.
Having fun with this and will be working on my own cats and dog maybe later today.
I know, you're shocked I have owned a dog.
Actually we've had several dogs over the years.
They've all been very special because they figured out pretty early on I was afraid of them and they each adapted pretty quickly.
Anyway, this has been fun.
