    Awesome work as always Marty!

    Thanks for sharing your process. It’s really interesting to follow a painting from sketch to finished art. You have a great imagination and the skills to illustrate them.
    I must also compliment you on your line drawings. They are wonderful. Have you been practicing a lot of line drawings lately?

    🙂 thanks Erik

    since we acquired a german shepherd puppy, i’ve actually been avoiding drawing – just haven’t had time.

    For me, a break from drawing always seems beneficial – when i come back, i’m a little rusty for a drawing or two – but as i’m warming up, i find that something i struggled with will all of a sudden becomes easy.

    quick sketch for tonight – a little rusty with the hand-eye coordination

    Great skills, rusty or not! And yes, I have the same experience when returning to drawing from doing something else (whether it be painting or something totally unrelated): techniques seem to have ‘sunk in’ . Always a happy moment 😉

    Thanks Marjan 🙂 I wonder though, when your pencil doesn’t seem to cooperate, do you start talking to it? 😀

    My pencil wouldn’t listen at first, but i think it is coming around.

    I’ll try sweet talking to my materials, good tip! For I usually mutter not-so-nice words and/or grunts when they don’t listen. Love is the word! 😉
    Does your puppy listen yet?

    hahahaha – i’ve scolded my materials, pleaded with them and praised them for a good job – not sure if it helps, but i have no intention of stopping.

    The dog is doing well. We’ve been training constantly. I’ve recently been teaching him off-leash. He comes when called, can sit, lay down and give his paw (shake hands). There is additional training for a service dog – he sits and waits for his food, doesn’t eat until commanded. He lays under the table at meals – no begging or human food. He sits at a door and doesn’t go through until commanded. He’s managing just fine with it so far, even though it seems like a lot.

    Love this sketch!I really get the sense of perspective, and – as always- love how you convey the different planes and ‘direction’ with just a few lines. Do you draw from life too? I plan to go to some open life drawing classes this spring (waiting for the evenings to be milder and lighter for I only have a bike and hate biking after dark in the cold along country roads to the Big City ;-))
    Draw the dog!

    Thanks Marjan 🙂

    Aside from some still life drawings, no life drawing. Living things in my house move all the time, and I’m an introvert. It isn’t relaxing for me to be in a group of people doing anything – and drawing/painting is what i do to relax.

    So short answer – I work from photos and memory drawings (sometimes i see something while i’m out, and i just have to draw it when i get home).

    Is the trip to your drawing class long? I hope you enjoy it, and stay safe! I’m eager to hear of your experience.
