Dogs as Art Models
There’s an adorable, shiny black lab who insists on sharing my cheese and crackers when we hang out.
It’s impossible to resist cracker division with this big love of a lap dog, and it gives me opportunities for surreptitious snapshots to make art.
I just dropped off one of these linocut prints (an edition of 10) in lieu of a modeling fee. It’s a good thing when artists take care of their models. Bartering is a long tradition in the arts. Modeling in exchange for cracker bits, and free artwork. 🙂
How to Choose Watercolor Paper
If you’re new to watercolor, and you get a creased-brow standing in front of the watercolor paper options at an art store (in person or online), I have something for you.
I built a downloadable 3-page primer on watercolor paper because I wish I had one when I first started painting.
You can get it emailed to you by clicking on this Watercolor Paper 101 link. I hope it’s helpful to you.
Have an experimental week, and I’ll see you in the next post!

People love dogs. This is, I hope, the least surprising sentence you will read in this book. I myself have had long discussions with my dog friends, and by that I mean my friends who are dogs.Bill Nye
