Portuguese Water Dog Sketch


Portuguese Water Dog (pen and wash, sketch book)

I love sketching animals in general, and dogs in particular. I was running low on reference photos, so I took advantage of the beautiful weather yesterday and took my camera to the local doggy park. There were about 12 dogs scampering about having a wonderful time! The owners could not have been nicer when I explained the purpose of my visit, and I was able to get some great photos.

This Portuguese Water Dog was very sweet. His owner said she chose him because of her son's allergies. Her son has had no allergic reactions to him and they could not be happier with their family pet. And yes, she said, her pet has been getting a LOT more attention ever since the Obamas mentioned the possibility of getting a Portuguese Water Dog for Sasha and Malia.

Thanks, Sheila — his coat was very curly, and surprisingly soft!
