Rhodesian Ridgeback, pencil drawing

Rhodesian Ridgeback line drawing

I love drawing animals from life, it was how I first got interested in drawing as a child, as I sketched our rabbits and dogs. I don’t have a dog of my own at the moment, so I relish every opportunity to sketch them live. This was a Rhodesian Ridgeback puppy I met. As with most animals, it is difficult to achieve any level of detail from a live drawing unless they are asleep!
