Sketch completed with 2B pencil and watercolour in Pentalic Aqua Journal. This was done as an assignment for a Sketchbook Skool online class I followed in the fall of 2014.

Sophie is an easy dog to sketch. As long as she is close to me, she will not budge. In both sketches, she is living la vida loca. Her favourite pillow is under my kitchen chair where she is quite happy to wait for me to finish whatever I am doing. It keeps her within visual distance of the fridge where at any moment, she could be offered a piece of cheese or carrot. Ahhhhh, life is good!

Sophie and Chico at their attentive best. There must have been a treat involved!

I’d love to hear what you have to say...
