Day 2 – Drawing the dog

2/100 I was planning on doing another marker piece last night, but I found these Faber-Castell oil pencils in my art supplies. They must have come from a sketching set at one point and I don’t think I’ve ever used them. I looked them up and apparently they’re often used for figure drawing, so I thought I would draw my pup! He was laying on the couch when I did them, but in the afternoon sunlight in these pictures it looks like he’s basking in the sun!

It was such an enjoyable experience using these soft pencils, though I had to sharpen a few times (which I like doing since I hand sharpen with a knife and it’s cathartic). So far I’m liking this exploring! Art is becoming more relaxing than ever as I just let myself play.
