Slobbing On The Settee

14 Aug

settee august

Today took some weird turns and I ended up doing things I wasn’t planning on, like making the most of the cooler weather to take the small hairy bandy-legged Pomerpoo for a long walk ….. and shopping for groceries …. nothing exciting. Add in a whole load of admin and a smattering of housework and here I am at the end of the day without doing anything arty so I quickly scribbled Husb as he’s slobbing on the settee watching telly. I could have scribbled the cat but she’s not speaking to me because we had the small hairy bandy-legged Pomerpoo to stay for a few days. Ballpoint pen into my A6 Frida Kahlo themed sketchbook.

I didn’t get it because it’s Frida Kahlo themed but because it was really cheap in a TK Maxx sale and it’s very good quality.

The Bandy Legged Ball Of Fur

It’s so hot and humid with thunderstorms and downpours coming and going and we’re dog sitting for a couple of days so Husb and I are trying to take the small hairy one for walks in between the heavy showers. I followed behind the Pooch and the Husb this evening, scribbling into my sketchbook. I had to move fast to catch her as she ran about – she doesn’t do anything slowly. The more I scribbled her, the more I realised that not only is she very furry, she’s also quite bandy-legged. I think I was finally getting somewhere with the last sketch, bottom just right of centre, but I stopped then because I was shattered – it’s so much harder exercising in this weather. The dog is a Pomerpoo ( a Pomeranian Poodle cross) and I drew her with a ballpoint pen.

Drawing Black

Drawing black is hard. So is drawing animals, well for me anyway. I’m pretty good at drawing cats now as I’ve had decades of practice and they tend to keep still. I haven’t quite got dogs though. Husb and I are puppy-sitting for a week, a little black Pomerpoo (Pomeranian Poodle cross). She has huge bat-like ears, big eyes and jet black silky fur, apart for a tiny smudge of white on her chin. I had a go this evening on my Samsung Galaxy Note 8 tablet using a free Markers app. I put in a dark grey ground to start with, then worked in light and dark on top with a variety of different digital brushes. Most of what’s black actually looks grey, silver or white when you analyse it. I drew from a photo, she’s far too excitable to pose for me.
