Dogs! Bubba and Badger, Golden Horse's Dogs

A ways back Golden Horse posted some pics of her new hound puppy, Bubba, who I thought was too cute for words, so last night I painted him.
I used rice paper and Japanese Sumi ink. This means that you have to paint with committment. The paper soaks up the ink really quickly, so you can't put the brush on the paper and not move it or you'll get a "blob". You have to really decide where to put a line and lay it down without any time to stop and consider it or change your mind.
I did three paintings of Bubba before I had one that I thought was decent.

Look at those smiling woofers!

You did a really great job capturing the sort of whimsy that dogs have... the constant happy. It practically oozes from your paintings and just makes me want to smile.

As far as the ink? By the sounds of things, you're far more patient than I could ever be!

Great job, love them.

On the theory that you never know until you ask, I never see Badger as a 'stationary object' if the muse took you, could you try and capture him in movement, this is how I see him

Do you see a trend here??

I can try. Those are great photographs! I love the first one best.

The type of painting I do is so , how shall I say, . . .iffy. It is just sometimes luck when I "capture" the essence of an animal. There are times when I just can't get it. But the more feel a picture has, the more angle, lighting and line, the more I have to go from . That's what I liked in the Badger picture; the tilt of his head, the loll of the tongue at an angle and the way the hair went everywhich way.
I can give it a go, tho, just can't give a gaurantee of success.

I wish they would, my skills don't run to that.

The last pic there, he was 6 months old, had been neutered 2 days before, in the same week he had also found a skunk and been bathed and found a porcupine, twice, and had been de quilled, and he was still bouncing.

I am so tempted to have that one of him made into a tattoo, it just inspires me to remember to live in the moment
