Drawing Day 2010


Today is Drawing Day, and for the event I put together a quick drawing of a pair of African hunting dogs. I've had a bunch of photos of these guys for a while, and I really want to do a large drawing with several of them in it. However, I realized that black and white would not suit these wonderfully colorful dogs. So... that gave me the idea for this drawing - a small-scale test, if you will, with the tinted charcoal that I have not used in some time. I do need to practice more with the tinted charcoal. With such a limited range of colors it is hard to get the depth I like. But I think this test is promising.

Happy Drawing Day!

Thank you all for your wonderful comments!

Cris, how might one contribute to a Blog-A-Thon?

Quite simple, one would write a post on the subject (or post a related image and tell the tale behind it) and then send the link to the blog-a-thon organiser (me) and then the organiser would include it with a description in the blog-a-thon post so other readers could come check it out. :o)
I'll be including posts until tomorrow morning Europe time so... feel free to join if you'd care to and can!

Thank you, BMV. Unfortunately, to my knowledge, you cannot add your site to Blogs of Note - they find you and add you.
