Those Soulful Eyes… Irish Wolfhound

A trip to Wollongong to sit the gallery all afternoon yesterday turned into a great excuse to pick up sketchpad and graphite pencils and look for something wonderful to try from the photos on Paintmyphoto.

I browsed for ages, there is so much to choose from (all copyright free) and such amazing photos… I bookmarked half a dozen that I’d like to try and paint sometime – to add to the 50 or so I already have saved now, all to try later 😛

This is actually one I found a few weeks ago… a beautiful Irish Wolfhound, one of my favourite dogs of all time. The Wolfhounds I have been privileged to meet are the gentlest souls: loyal, affectionate and patient. I would love to own one someday except I’m not sure I’ll ever live anywhere big enough!
