Fooling around last night and these two kind of appeared out of nowhere. The greyhound is rendering of a statue I have in my home, a reproduction of an original by P.J. Mene. I find myself going back and back to that statue as a subject matter. There's something about the way the dog's head is turned that I love.
The fish is just a leaping fish. It's an image that - as a fisherman - I have in my head often: the graceful, powerful salmon or trout desperately leaping to try to free itself from the hook. It took me many, many much smaller tries to get the twist of the fish right. But that's what's nice about drawing: you can practice and practice in a small setting.
