I’ve kept sketchbooks for many years – and I have drawn dogs a lot. I sketch and draw in ink almost every day. Some time ago my wife Judy saw some of my dog drawings in my bound sketchbook and said “I really wish you’d do these on good paper.” The phrase ‘good paper’ in our house means handmade paper.
So I did.
After a while I had a lot of drawings-on-good-paper. Then Judy said “I wish you’d show these to Amy.” Amy is the gallery owner of Caplan Art Designs.
So I did.
And now Amy has been selling my dog drawings almost as fast as I can make them! I love being this busy! To make my drawings I use fountain pens and brush-and-ink. Occasionally I’ll use a very sharp pointed pen-nib and the ink – for very fine lines. I use that when a dog has lots of whiskers.
Then Judy said “I wish you’d post some of these regularly on your blog.”
So I am….starting now.

Judy was right! Pickles is fantastic. Yay! I’m looking forward to seeing more of these.
Thanks Laura! I’ll try to regularly post these under the category “Sue Draws Dogs” – so as to make them easily found, I hope. 😉 The ink dog drawings may also occasionally show up with one of my silly poems attached. Thank you so much for looking!
Oh, and Laura I’ve updated my website http://www.sueclancy.com so that there is now a “dog portrait” page – found via a drop down menu under “fine art”. I’ll also try to put new ink dog portraits there from time to time.
