We are invited to attend a good friends 55 birthday party on Saturday. He is a dog lover extraordinaire so I thought “why not create a little dog art!”. Patrick & Cynthia recently put down their old terrier. Unfortunately, I have lost all my reference photos of little old Danny, so a generic Boarder Terrier will have to suffice. Originally I was contemplating a paper cut version, but block printing on a rainy day felt best.
Here is the start of the print.
Lino block is 4″x4″. End color will be in black oil-based ink. I’ll post further changes tomorrow.
Normally, I stay far away from animal representations in my work. Maybe I might need to try a couple more for the heck of it.
