Daily Animal Doodle #14

Today's Daily Animal Doodle was fun and pretty easy because it was Dog. And who is my favorite dog? Our dog, Chloe, of course! 

She is such a fun subject because of her distinctive features: the long floppy ears, the shiny brindle-patterned coat, her hound dog face. But I discovered pretty quickly that brindle is a touch pattern to draw. It's very stripey, without looking TOO much like stripes. So I tried simulating stripes by using the dark fur color and drawing them with short little strokes. I think it worked.
Do you remember this Home Ec post about her dog bed? That will give you a better idea of her coloring. She is such a pretty dog. I think she'll be excited to hear she was my model today!

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend,
