Compare the Weimaraner drawn with conté crayon on heavyweight cartridge with the diddy Dachshund drawn on semi-rough cartridge paper using a B grade pencil on the opposite page. Head and ears are not dissimilar, but the Weimaraner does narrow considerably towards the rear and of course the greatest difference is in their relative leg lengths. Studying their features in detail, look at the eyes, nostrils, ears and jaws and how they align with the position of the mouth with artist's tips for different breeds of short haired, long haired dogs, their colours and markings, even wild dogs. We love the finished drawing of the Saluki on page 35 and how the artist explains the raised areas and hollows and the bright light source reflected off the fence and on to the underside of the head to accentuate the three dimensional quality of the subject. Covering texture and markings, behaviour and expression, movement with dogs jumping for a ball or over a fence, even when your subjects are reluctant to pose, you can work from videos or photographs, or from dog shows and observations in the park. With helpful hints, tips and techniques, step-by-step illustrations, choosing the right medium and how to include the dog's surroundings in your pictures. 64 page large softback, 8" x 11". With technical tips and techniques, rated two out of a series of five for difficulty level.
