...A rather perfect description of my furry friend, don't you think? And I thought it up all by myself :0)
It wasn't Kathryn Ragan that came up with it at all - cough, cough!!
Pah! I am a useless liar! Okay, okay, so Kathryn came up with that and I STOLE it! I am a word thief! Mind you it's just as well, because some my own descriptions of Sherlock are quite frankly entirely unsuitable to write in a blog post!
Anyway - rather than complain about the fact that the 'Canine Vacuum Extrordinaire' has been keeping me from the art studio while he has a bad leg - it seems that Sherlock has now become my furry model instead!
And following my more comical sketch last week, this one is a little more developed and looks just like the little dude :0)
Here he is, chilling out on the... um... yyyes - that'll be the coffee table...
.....Okay - so we really need to establish the rules on where exactly is acceptable for him to sit!
Anyway - there is a difference between 'finishing' a drawing and 'completing' one.
In this case I had completed it at the point of just Sherlock and the coffee table.
Once I stupidly began adding unnecessary detail like curtains, unfortunately, it was then finished!
My advise to anyone is to NEVER draw while chatting on the phone. For some odd reason during a conversation that went on a while, I found myself picking up my pencil and doodling some background on to what I had actually considered a completed drawing. Silly mistake and one to remember!
Ah well, it was never meant to be a serious portrait thankfully!
Anyway - here's how he developed...
Anyone new to my blog needs to scroll down some way to realise that my usual furry friends are bears and I'm not just about the dog!
But for now, Sherlock is becoming rather famous, which might explain why his head is getting larger by the day!
