Waiting For Mam

6 Mar


I spent a happy hour puppy sitting the adorable gallery puppies at Galerie Simpson this afternoon. They are two sweet black Patterdale Terriers and when their Mam popped out, they patiently waited for her – before falling asleep. So cute. And very scribblable! I never miss an opportunity for a scribble. It’s interesting drawing different animals. I’m used to cats, human beings and other monkeys, even the odd bird, but these dogs are so different. Lovely little triangular floppy ears and skinny, skinny legs with big paws.

Galerie Simpson has recently opened on the High Street in Swansea. It’s an area that is undergoing a lot of regeneration and it badly needs it. I lived in this area when I was a small child until most of it was demolished and it’s been very run down for many years, so it’s good to see it on the up at last as part of the new Urban Village, being built by Coastal Housing Group. There’s a terrific exhibition of original prints, Art Lovers, at Galerie Simpson at the moment and it’s on until Easter. Watch out for events coming up at the gallery including Sunday Tea and an arty brunch.

I drew this into my A5 Tate Gallery sketchbook with a Faber Castell Pitt drawing pen, size F and I used the last pages – I finished it! I love finishing a sketchbook, there’s a great sense of achievement and also excitement about starting a new one. Which one will it be? OOOOOHHHH!!!!! I’m such a geek 😀

    I LOVE a finished and at the same time, a brand new, sketchbook. Art geeks, unite! 😀

      It’s so satisfying putting a finished sketchbook into the cupboard 🙂

    I especially like the implied movement in the puppy butt! So almost wiggly with anticipation!
