Castle Bolton

Here is the top half of my next piece. This is Castle Bolton near Aysgarth (and also near my last drawing at West Burton).
I wanted to draw the castle from a different angle, so thought I would place it in the background of yet another stile drawing. This scene does actually exist, but if you were to stand at this stile, the castle would be much smaller in the distance...the joys of artistic licence!

No it's not a dog!!

Here is the top third section of a new drawing. I thought i should take a short break from the dogs and try something a little different.

This is the beginnings of West Burton Falls in the Yorkshire Dales. I live just down the road from here, so have visited it often, but on this day it was really roaring (it was after quite a rain storm) and I thought it would make for an interesting drawing.

Greyhound complete!

Another 6 hours and the Greyhound is complete.

A little bit more Greyhound

Here is today's work. Having put in about 7 hours, I actually thought I may get a little further than this today, but I guess you can't rush a Greyhound!
The head is pretty much complete, with the exception of the mouth which needs more work.
A few more hours tomorrow should see this one finished.

Can't stop drawing dogs!!

I had decided that I would take a break from drawing things of the Canine variety, so here is something different... OK, so it isn't different at all, it's another dog, but I just couldn't resist!
Here we have the beginnings of a Greyhound. We are about 7 hours into this with quite a way to go yet.
