Why do I keep picking at this image? It keeps festering on the drawingboard, receiving more marks in different areas, resolving questionable zones. I think I’m finally satisfied enough with his nose and the pencil is moving down into the muzzle zone. His chin hair is crazy! Do I really try to capture it or just tidy things up a bit? I think I’ll just tidy and resolve this flanks a bit more. Just make it read better!
Of course I said this image was going to be completed last Friday, but the week was a bit crazier than expected. This week too has been nutty due to hubby venturing into the COVID-19 hot zone of Seattle only to be pushed back home. The sister business he was visiting implemented a shut down due to an employee being exposed to the virus. Dave was sent packing back to Oregon. Quite a short trip for such a long drive.
The dogs are happy our household is back together. I didn’t even get the opportunity to enjoy his being gone. But the pup drawing is another step closer to moving back to Minnesota!
Resolve problems and let it go is today’s goal!
