EDM Challenge #124 Something Yellow


This particular animal, in this particular position is affectionately known as "Miss Hollywood" , her real name is Bridget. I have tried to paint and draw our dogs several times with absolutely no success! This was really quick and she got up and moved as soon as I got the rough outline in pencil so the color tones are all from memory... She's half Yellow Lab and half Golden Retriever, so she does qualify as something yellow...

Oh! What a sweetie! (tho having had both a yellow lab and a golden retriever I'd bet she's also half brat at times LOL) Great solution to the yellow challenge.

Yes- capturing pets - and all animals - is a real challenge. But what a great pose she did for you! And a really original take on the challenge.

Yes indeed, a great dog position, as Teri said. You definitely caught the dogginess of her!

Our Abby does exactly the same thing! She's all Golden, though. That pose is certainly devil-may-care to the nth degree!
Charming sketch, Tami.

I love this pose. Ours does it to. But most of the time only when he got an itching on his back *lol*

I love this one - what a joyous pose - sort of Hockneyish in composition
