Sunday Sketches

Hope all had a good Christmas. Spent boxing day shoveling iced over snow. So far I think it has been an extremely over productive winter where the white stuff is concerned :D
Today I was working on Valentine day stamps, and I remember also that today is Sunday so our darling hostess at Blue Chair Diary is hosting Sunday Sketches - yeah.- so this is my sketch for sunday :)
The stamp was sketched then redrawn in illustrator which was then printed and coloured with watercolour pencils. The dog has been bugging me a bit, as the pose is a little strange as I am not sure if it really works :( maybe I should make the body sort of be lying bending like behind the boys shoes instead of being straight back and not seen ..hmmm

Cheers

.....updated version with the dog body visible :)

Very cute. Love the little touches like the way one foot of the girl is gently lifting in an innocently flirty way. Clever!

Lovely sketch, the dog looks fine to me and I love all the soft colours you used.

I like it, though I agree, maybe the dog lying to the side would make him more visible. Lovely.
