P67 – Drawing Animals: Grabbing The Chance (Part 1)

“Take opportunities as they arise.”

I managed to do some animal sketches on three occasions. Firstly, we had to ‘dog sit’ Henry, my son’s Cavalier King Charles spaniel, when his bitch was on heat. He was fairly still when asleep in a chair and I got some reasonable drawings of him using a soft pencil.

I was invited to an inner-city farm by Jen, a friend from Hot Bed Press print studio. Here I managed some sketches in different materials.
