Above: More gesture sketches of a French Bulldog, using the Pentel Pocket Brush Pen, and Schmincke pan watercolors (right). This journal is handmade with Winsor & Newton 90 lb. hot press watercolor paper and you can see the extensive watermark running up the left-hand edge of the page spread. Blue strip at the left edge is just a bit of a previous page peeking out on the scan.) Click on the image to view an enlargement.
Here I am tired, and just about ready to go to bed. It's the end of my French Bulldog evening. I thought I would make a couple of very quick sketches all over a new page spread, like the too-long-in-the-body sketch at the left (rather than be frustrated with how working across the gutter often distorts my perception and angles I enjoy it—it's all learning). Instead, I ended up taking one more stab at the head and ears, playing with a bit of watercolor. When French Bulldogs start to look a bit more like Boston Terriers, then you know it's time to finally go to bed.
Or stay up and watch "Terriers" which isn't about dogs (though there is a dog in some episodes). I'll have more to say about that on another day.
