A simple approach to drawing a dog in a quarter of an hour.
For this exercise you'll need a photo of a dog to work from; printed or on a screen. The approach could be applied to a range of different drawing materials.
To really capture the personality of a dog you need to spend time observing their behaviour, sketching their energetic movements in half-formed notes, perhaps attempting longer studies when they are asleep or eating. Apply the same energetic marks you'd make when sketching from life to drawing from a photograph. This exercise is taken from my book 'Draw Dogs in Fifteen Minutes'.
