Above: Pentel Brush Pen and gouache sketch of Swatch from "Project Runway. (8 inch square hardbound journal with the old/defunct Folio paper). No black paint here, I'm experimenting with Helio Blue (a phthalo blue that has a bit of a green cast to it) and mixing it with it's complementary red. Click on the image to view an enlargement.
You can bet if there is a dog on a TV show I'm going to see it. So it's no surprise to my friends who know I watch "Project Runway" that I sketch Swatch whenever he appears.

Remember I think dogs are best when they are black and white! (The girls.) It's so graphic. And so fun to paint. What you might not know is that I love Boston Terriers. I think they are adorable. My radar is always alert to them.
So today I'm sharing two sketches I did of Swatch while watching "Project Runway."
Even though I've been a fan of Swatch since he started appearing on the show I never knew if he was male or female, so I sought the answer on the internet and found this lovely article all about Swatch by Robyn Hagan Cain. Check it out.
Find a dog to sketch today.
If you can't find one, watch "Project Runway" and sketch Swatch!
