Sketchbook Dogs

13012-sk. Two more ink line sketches, 10 minutes each using a Sharpie Ultra-Fine Point Permanent Marker on archival heavyweight sketchbook paper. 

You need to keep that pen moving quickly. If you need changes, just draw another line. Never try to erase. The quick sketch trains your mind to see. Nothing has to be perfect. You will be amazed at how much information can be communicated with just a few broken lines. 

As a child, I was reprimanded for daydreaming. Today my daydreams morph into paintings.
