With Jesse wrapped up and flying off to Idaho before I could change my mind (!), I was still in the mood for drawing dogs. Then I remembered I still had an unfinished Yorkie lying around here somewhere so I fished it out and threw colour at it with abandon! I wasn't too happy with it before so I felt there was nothing to lose anyway. It still wasn't quite working until this morning. I was looking at a fantastic drawing on Tommy Kane's blog this week and marvelling at his vibrant colours and thinking about how interesting his crosshatched backgrounds are. My drawing was looking flat so I added various spots of colour in my background (which doesn't show too well in the scan) and it looked a lot better. It's still nowhere near as brave as I want to be, but I think it's a step in the right direction anyway!
