Fun Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Art

The one thing as an artist I’ve always wanted to do is be able to draw my beloved Cavalier King Charles Spaniel dogs. My goal for the year 2021 is to be able to draw them consistently and feel comfortable coloring them in the fun iPad drawing app Procreate. I’ve been taking classes on the website Udemy and Skill Share to learn more about cartoon drawing and painting techniques. Below I would like to show you some of my creations thus far.

This is Sadie, my 8 year old Cavalier Who is dressed up for a day in Paris, France. This gave me a fun way of playing with fashion illustration which I’m very much interested in. I do have to get better at drawing fashion models. The time being, I can add some fashion on my dog!
Here is Sadie throwing a snowball at my other dog, a Labradoodle, Duke. This was a great challenge for me. I’m not used to driving elaborate at all and working on trying to create texture in the image without it looking too messy was quite a balance.

I started this right around Christmas and finished it by New Year’s Day. I have three Cavalier King Charles spaniel‘s and one Labradoodle. I really wanted to create a Christmas ornaments for our tree of the four dogs.

Once I start feeling comfortable with my Cavalier King Charles drawings I will branch out to other dogs. I’m looking forward to this year as I hope to really grow with experience using Procreate and cartoon drawing. I am going to take a break from Watercolor for the time being to see how far I can go with this new venture.
