Our dogs seem to sleep 90% of the time, and are a natural subject for a quick sketch. Daisy (here) is perfect for a 20 minute sketch, she stays nearly as still as any piece of fruit or still life I might set up. Too bad I can't draw her snoring! Pen on ecru paper, 5" x 7".
I do think about when the dogs are no longer with us, and I hope quick sketches like this capture the essence of what it is like to have them around. They have a good life, lazy bums that they are.
