Cat-of-the-day has been rather neglected of late, in favour of artwork I actually have to get on with, so this weekend visiting my brother’s family in Norfolk I made an effort to draw things: people and dogs, specifically. The modern tendency to stare into a screen for long periods of time is not a great social habit but it is quite useful for portraiture, since the screen-viewer tends to be immobile for long periods of time with their face gently lit by the screen. Babies and dogs, however, cannot use smartphones or ipads, and so are a lot more difficult to capture in this way.
No fewer than four Swimming pictures in a row on Cat-of-the-Day, and not a single cat in-between. The trouble is, I am away and there are no cats here. So, here is a brief dog….
Dog-of-the-day: Marmite, who was leaning against my knee, so I had to draw my own knee too… I am back amongst cats now, not dogs, but I have some more urgent work so this quick study of dog legs will have to do for the moment.
