girl and 3 dogs looking the street

“Oops, what is there? Some people coming? Or is it a horse? “

It was nothing, little dogs! Hehehe

All three dogs are very fond of looking through the green gate to see who goes, who comes … if it is a car or the milk truck. Besides that, my dog has a special spot: a sand little mound. From there he is able to spend hours and hours watching the street, sleeping…

Talking about Bread (my dog), I tried again to take a picture with him. It is usually quite difficult to get a nice picture because, in general, my dog looks the wrong side. It really sends a “bye bye” for the cameras. In this pic, he even sat down, but you can see what happened! hehehe

As he likes to sleep next to me, I can draw him and study his forms. Bread loves to lay down whenever it is possible. In this picture here you can see one of the sketches I made of him and then painted with watercolors.

After some studies, you can try new things about the same subject. This drawing was done with ink scribbles made with brush and color stains. Nothing very precise (it is possible to see that I was impatient to paint as the black ink blurred), but I think there is the feeling free brush has energy. I like that image,  that is simply anoteher way of seeing my dog. In the end, the observation study serves as fuel for the imagination and free line expression.
