Chasing GoatsPosted: September 28, 2021 Filed under: USkO | Tags: animals, goats 1 Comment
It’s been a while since I have sketched. Last Tuesday was USkO’s 7th birthday though, so I had to get out for a little doodling to celebrate the occasion today – even if it was a week late. Inspired by the goat sketches on the blog some months ago, I decided to chase down some of my own hooved friends. They must have had a double shot of espresso though. I was teased with three-second poses.
Ooh, a triumphant stance on a boulder, nice – and before I knew it, the darn thing would be jumping around again or hiding in the grass. It sure was fun though! Boing! I quickly switched to a more gestural style with a brush pen.
If I visit right after they finish a big meal, then they might actually look like goats next time. :D
Happy birthday and keep on sketching!
Fabulous! It seems you are thriving on those teasers: the shorter the pose, the more expressive the sketch. Looks like everybody had a lot of fun!
