Chinese Year of the Dog - Biro Drawing


Chinese Year of the Dog

Happy day to you!

Part of my "Draw 180" challenge is to include biro (British speak), or ballpoint pen drawings. Using ink as the initial layout, there is no turning back! I find myself erasing constantly and I now challenge myself to commit to a line. I went through some intense emotion the first couple of drawings but eventually grew confidence. In this drawing, you can see my initial layout lines and where I changed my mind and recommitted to another. I've grown to appreciate this look. 😁

It's the "Year of the Dog" in Chinese astrology at last. Here is my first (I think) finished entry of a dog.
