Dog Days of Summer -the Bloodhound

Posted by on Sep 8, 2012 in Blog | No Comments

Bloodhounds are amazing dogs,and Sherlock is a show stopper, multiple show winner,  Canadian and US Show Champion, and has lots of wrinkles! Many times I have admired him from  the back of his owner’s pickup at Tim Hortons. I finally got the privilege of painting him recently. He may look like a big lug, but nothing gets past that nose of his! He wanted to know everything he could find out about me, gathered through his nose. Painting dogs from life requires a lot of patience, and many false starts as they constantly move around, even while sleeping.
