Pet Portraits: Pets Out and About

While I don’t own a pet due to apartment restrictions, I get plenty of pet time when I’m out and about. As of June 2020, when I see a cute pet during a walk (or even while dinning), I ask the owner if I could take a picture of it for a later sketch.

Here are a few I’ve met on recent journeys.

This Doxie (Bertie) is one of our mascots!

Animal Sketch Project 1

Certainly, sketching pups and kitties is fun to do, but as I am learning from commissions, there is a world of different types of pets out there. While not all of the animals shown on this page are pets, all are loved by the people who submit them for portraits!

Dog Project, Round 1

Like with my other pet projects (Doxie, Kitty, and now Dog), I sketch at least one pet daily, then post it online when done.

I started my Dog Project at the beginning of May 2020 and have been building upon it ever since. The latest sketch immediately follows this text.

The images start out as pencil sketches. Next, they are painted with watercolors and key lined with pen. Finally, are brought into Photoshop where they are finished. Among adjustments, Photoshop allows me to separate the subject from the initial background, but not all sketches are finished that way.

Happy pup in his forever home!

Kitty Project, Round 1

As of April 20, I’ve started adding kitties to my portfolio. Many of the references were acquired at random through Upsplash and Pixabay, but I am looking for *yours.*

If you have some interesting pictures of your cats, especially if they are doing funny stuff, contact me at Karen@Sketch-Views.com.
