Pogy

pen, Step-by-Step, watercolour

I’ve had a couple of days of not posting since Inktober, but I’ve continued to draw and paint in the meantime.

Here’s something I worked on a couple of weeks ago.


This is Pogy. He’s a Neardie rescue (meaning he’s sort of like a bearded collie, maybe?) Pogy is super friendly and loves cuddles. He once jumped out a secon d story window and now has a metal part in his leg, but he’s made a full recovery. My dad calls him Seargant Major Pogy because he’s got such a straight back like a meerkat.

He posed beaitfully for me to do a water colour base, and later I added some detail in pen over the top.

Ideally I’d be able to complete the whole study with him as my model, or at  least a detailed photo, but that’s ok, it was useful practice. Next time I’d like to have another go with different coloured pens.

I hope you’re all enjoying the changing season and chilly air!

Inktober 2017 – Day 24: Blind

inktober, pen

Today’s entry is a quick sketch done on my lunch break.

This is Josh our rescuem initiallyI couldn’t think of anything form”blind”, but realised all weekend I’ve had a perfect example with an overgrown fringe.

Inktober has helped me feel more comfortable doing art in public, although I do still sometimes feel a little on show. 

I’m having a good day so far. It’s been productive and I’m finishing a little earlier than usual (and hopefully I’ll miss rush hour traffic). Fingers crossed that the second half of the day is also productive.
