This is a fun study I did in preparation for a larger painting. I never quite know how I will draw a particular dog’s fur or features, so preliminary drawings are essential. After developing the right texture and sheen in the sketches, the final art looks effortless. Effortless, hah! So much is illusory.

I am proud that this artwork was exhibited at the 28th Annual Art Show at the Dog Show, held from March 1 to April 7, 2014 in Wichita, Kansas. Please see my News update to see the other drawings of mine exhibited at the show.
