Pet Portrait – "Sweet Dreams"

“Sweet Dreams” 8 x 10″ Graphite Pencil on Watercolor Paper

Sometimes I enjoy the challenge of drawing a quick rough sketch without using my eraser. That means every line and smudge stays on paper. While the final image seems a little more rough, it’s a fantastic sneak peek of all the extra gestures that an artist uses when creating a drawing.

“Sweet Dreams” captures that moment when a puppy steals a quick nap with his favorite teddy. Dreaming of the day when he’s a big dog that runs, plays, and stands tall. The nap and dreams are all fleeting moments – so drawing each pose as a quick sketch seemed fitting.
