Fast Foolin' Around


Another wonderful rainy day! Busy doing Saturday stuff, including printing out some photos from our trip to Dollywood last weekend. While I had a photo of the crowd up on the computer screen, I decided to do a fast sketch. To time myself, I picked a 5 and a half minute song on iTunes, and let it play while I drew -- I had to stop when the song stopped. In reality, that's much slower than a crowd in real life would have moved, but it feels like a good way to practice. I'm wondering about adding color ... ???

RuPaw is still at the vet. He's feeling better, but not being very cooperative with his IV lines, so she wants to keep him until Monday. I went to pay him a visit, and while he looks better than he was, he still doesn't look exactly GREAT. I'm thinking that I'm going to be bringing him home Monday, no matter what. I think any longer is just too stressful for him. I love our vet, by the way -- she's just great!

Wonderful, loose, fabulous, squiggly lines - that give so much detail...how on earth do you do that? I love the little reflections of the people in the wet - and I'd love to see a :::leetle::: color on this - kind of - maybe print it out on Doug's fancy printer and play a little...

Glad to hear RuPaw is perking up...hope he continues to get better today and you can bring him home tomorrow!!

My personal prefernce? No color, allow the line to do all the work providing movement and mood. You can play with color on the computer as Diahn has suggested, but I would leave the sketches as they are.

I'm so glad he's getting better, I think the extra stress may not be helping. I love these sketchs and wouldn't add color.

Maybe he will improve more when he gets home.
