#AprilA2Z Art Sketching through the Alphabet “D” + #WW


Hello, Kitten & Dawgs!  I’m delighted you joined me for the next A2Z alphabet prompt and for my “D” prompt art sketches. The opening video is a bit of spoiler, but I couldn’t resist sharing it.

D is for Dog! Do you own a dog? I do not have a dog but if I did I would like a black or brown labrador.  LL Bean always features labrador puppies in their Christmas catalogs and sometimes other times throughout the year and it might have been this marketing trick that caused me to adore these cute furbabies.  I think they’d make good pets.

Originally, my labrador was just an outline drawing.  The example I  used from the net didn’t offer shading suggestions. I went back to wing the details.

The more involved I get with sketching the bolder I get with trying to do more. Maybe more than I am capable of doing but I doing it anyhow.  After all, isn’t this meme meant to challenge ya?

You can try drawing this terrier, too. Just follow these instructions and have fun!  Shading will take more time to develop but if I keep at it then the techniques will seem second-hand.

I have one more dog drawing for ya before you go.  I fell in love with the dalmatian puppies in the Disney movie, 101 Dalmatians and for DD#2’s second birthday I did this as her party theme. I don’t think they’d make a good pet for me but I still think they are pretty animals.

You can learn how to draw this pup, here! I’m figuring out if you’re a visual person then you sketching might be an easy fit and all it takes is practice, practice, practice!

Hopefully, sharing with you every day will encourage you to do something that interests you that you’ve long put off because like me you just don’t think you can. My advice is, just do it! Maybe, you’ll be surprised. I know I was! 🙂

Inspire me! What “D” subjects should I doodle next?

I’m heading off to link up with other fellow AtoZers and you’re invited to come along.  I’ll see you on tomorrow for the next installment of Art Sketching through the Alphabet!
