I am so digging this charcoal drawing, Whippet Landscape by Donalee Peden Wesley. It is actually charcoal, pastel, conte crayon and graphite on paper. This is one in a series of Whippets. You can really see the personality of the dogs. They come to life!
As a dog owner, I can really appreciate the “realness” of the dogs in her drawings. Donalee likes to explore the depths and subtleties of the human/animal relationship. Even though she is conveying unique personalities and relationships, it’s easy enough to put my own narrative on the drawing.
I wanted to use the dog as a landscape , the back seemed as a rolling hill . This is the first in a series of dog and horse as landscape.
