Day 14: Puppy Love

Olga's Pooches (Graphite Sketch)

Olga’s Pooches (Graphite Sketch)

 

These two dogs belong to my Pilates Instructor, Olga Tamara, director of the Authentic Pilates Studio in Sydney, and are the most adorable pooches I’ve ever seen. They are (I’m fairly sure) spadoodles and also sisters, and are inseparable.

This morning I arrived for my regular Saturday morning class but due to one thing and another we decided to reschedule and I found myself with a little extra time on my hands and an inspiration for today’s practice.

It was intended to be a value sketch as a preliminary for a painting, as well as some general sketching practice… value studies are something I haven’t ever done before but I’ve been reading how important they are. I don’t think I have the hang of it yet, and I also ran off the page with the composition! It was fun though.
