More Contour Dogs from the Sketchbook Project

Here are two contour drawings of Hatrick from The Sketchbook Project. I explained the concept of contour drawing and my participation in The Sketchbook Project in this post last week.

Hattie is quite an accomplished model and has  previoiusly appeared in: Digging to Australia, Back with the Ball, Dog in a Ball and Pup Aware.

Right now, the sketchbooks are on display at The Brooklyn Art Library. Then they are making their way to the SPACE Gallery in Portland, ME.

Not much new to say about these drawings. It is easier to draw dogs when they are sleeping, so you are going to see a lot of lying down type poses like these.....

Love these contour drawings Hannah. They seems to capture the contentedness of Hatrick in your one unwinding continuous line. Could you see these in an etching?

Thanks Hannah.

I have thought of translating these into prints! We'll have to see....
