Human Beings And How They Spend Their Time, Out With the Dogs, by Joan Tavolott

I was off visiting my sister today and traveling into the city with her and although I have something from today that will fit this theme, I haven't taken photos of it yet. In addition to sketching in the city we went to see the American Watercolor Society Show...amazing!!!

I did this sketch when I was in NYC recently with the NYC Urban Sketchers. These ladies were at the dog run in the park. And true to form there were dogs running everywhere. I had to wait for these cuties to return to their owners every once in a while to get them into the sketch.

  1. Joan, these little dogs (and their owners) are so cute! Great scenery, too - I can feel the place.

    1. Thanks, Margaret. It is always fun to compare the owners and their dogs.

  2. Lovely touches of colour. You have captured the resigned patience of the dog owners as they sit waiting. It is clearly just a dog run, not a dog plus owner exercise place! Nice colours in the trees in the background.

  6. It looks like a cold and windy day. I bet the dogs just want to go home and cuddle up on the couch. They should be wearing little sweaters. LOL. Beautiful drawing.

    1. LOL There were some dogs at the park that day wearing sweaters. People in NYC often dress up their dogs. Thanks so much!
