I am learning a lot of interesting things during my process of drawing my dear elder beagle in pen without pencil lines first:
1. It's not as easy as my artist fiend, Nancy makes it look.
2. A lot of observational skills are involved as well as a lot of thinking. I've discovered I need to explain to myself what shape I am trying to draw. I say silently to myself things like, the end of Sock's lips are a small circle.
3. Socks likes reclinging poses these daze.
4. I had to excuse myself from sketching on day 24 as I didn't fit in sketching time. Nobody's perfect.
