Quick initial sketch of Timber for a commissioned piece. There will be more doggy sketches to come, I’m sure!
Walked over to a little local park today and sketched this on location. Only one person spoke to me; he was walking a dog (in a park that doesn’t allow dogs) and said: “Looks like you’re having a good time.” The forced chuckle after that statement made it a somewhat weird, awkward moment, but I just smiled and said, “I hope you’re having a good day too.”
One elderly gentleman was doing laps, walking around the perimeter of the park. Every time he passed me, I’d hear a few seconds of the polka music he was listening to.
I started reading *Laughter in the Dark* by Nabokov after sketching this, and one phrase struck me — so I added it to the side of the sketch, because why not?
In a sketchbook? Or something.
