10/08: FEELING TIRED!

I had one of those horrible nights when you just can't switch off the brain and get to sleep (until 6.30am when its almost time to get up) ... consequently this afternoon whilst watching the Dressage/Olympics I found myself drifting off/dozing at times ...

But I did do some more work on the spaniel drawing ... Ordinarily I'd tackle curls like this in pastel as I find it simpler, but I did fancy a challenge and its certainly been that!

Here's the latest update ... not sure if I will carry on/finish this tomorrow or pack the coloured pencils away and get the pastels out as I've got a Doberman dog to portray before the end of August.   I'm not taking on commissions at the moment ... but this one was a special request that I couldn't refuse.   I'm not overly happy with the ref photo but its good enough to work from so .. watch this space over the next few days

Here's the Spaniel - in coloured pencil on drafting film (with a black backing sheet) - size approx A3

I had a lousy night last night too. Even quit bowling early I was so tired. I have never seen a spaniel so very curly.

Can't believe you're doing all those curls in cp! It's looking good but get some rest!

Looking good so far Sue, I get your desire to use pastels, much easier and quicker to use on these curly dogs. White...and curly, a challenge indeed!!
