I'm spending some quality time at the dog park this week. Normally I just walk in the lovely, large, half forest park by my home, but I'm dog-sitting for my dad for five days, and his energetic dog needs to really run and play.
Yesterday the weather was so nice, I decided to take my sketchbook with me. I don't do a lot of pencil sketches (or people), so it was a good opportunity.
Here's my dog plum tuckered out (while Abby runs on).
It was also good to get back to do a few grittier scenes. I've been doing lots of house commissions, which is great, but it's good for me to mix it up with some more urban views as well. The dog park has lots of lovely telephone lines and radio towers.
