Dawson

Occasionally I memorialize a dog that has passed.   I don't know the owner of this dog, but I was asked by a mutual friend to do a drawing.  So I did.  

I draw using computer software.  It isn't like the computer does it for me, though...I use a pen just like I would if I was drawing on paper.  The advantages are that I can draw on multiple layers...not possible on paper or canvas... and bring those layers forward and backward as I please.  For example, in this image, I drew the rainbow behind the dog but simply erased that portion that would have overlapped...because there are only three layers to this drawing.  The dog, the rainbow, and the background.
