When I sketched my friend’s dog and showed it to her, she liked what I had done. She then asked if she could keep it, and I obliged. A few weeks later. She sent me the following pictures. Once framed, even I have to admit it looks pretty good. Now I just have to sketch the rest of her dogs!
Yeah, I know, Taylor Swift. I hope the sketch is recognizable. She’s one of my favorite subjects to draw. She’s just a beautiful subject. I’ve sketched her several times. Many came out horribly. I like this one, though.
My best friend’s dog, Pearl. I’m visiting my friend and Pearl jumped up beside me. I decided to try and draw her. I’ve never drawn a dog before, so this was new to me.
I’ve been considering starting an art blog for sometime, a place to showcase my work. I’m in no respect an accomplished artist. Honestly, I’m not much of an artist.
I have no illusion of selling any of my pieces. I may never get to that point, but that’s not really my goal, at least short term. I’ve only started painting and sketching fairly recently. I began a little over a year ago. I can’t devote too much time to it, but I do what I can, when I can.
I still fancy myself a writer, and I hope to publish something one day. In the meantime, I draw because I can create. Sometimes it’s something original, sometimes I sketch something I see online. If so, it’s definitely not something I can sell. It’s simply an exercise so I can improve my technique.
