Contented Dog (#35): 100 Face Challenge

When I saw this photo of my friend Jodi’s dog at Life in Between…do I have to finish this sentence? How could anyone resist this face?!

Charlie: MM journal, 2B graphite

There is nothing sweeter than the eyes of a dog. A challenging, foreshortened view that I’m still working on rendering just right, but every single time, such a joy to try and capture. Thank you, Jodi, for sharing your lovely photos. And thank you, Charlie, my partner in crime!Β Β  You both inspire me.

Saturdays are inspiring too! Beef stew will bubble in the crockpot, some kind of cool gluten-free chocolate chunk bars will be baking in the oven…..and then let the weekend dance continue with color galore! Happy almost February…..peace.

You captured my sweet Charlie’s sweet soul, and I am blown away! I cannot express in words how happy you have made me this morning. Thank you sweet sweet Laura! Charlie and I love ya!

    1. Thanks, Jodi! So glad you enjoyed this after a crazy day yesterday. I’ve drawn Charlie endlessly, such a wonderful subject with your amazing photos. This is my most recent try, though. I’m really glad you see him there! His eyes are so amazingly beautiful. πŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œ

  3. I love dogs, your drawings make me realize how much I miss having one in my family. I am going to draw some dogs in my coming sketches now! I love how soft your lines are, it creates a very gentle atmosphere around your subjects. Nice going!
