A few more lines...

Moving on from yesterday's post, I have added more lines and hopefully you can see what it is now....(laugh)




William the lurcher having a snooze!


The interesting thing is, that had I given yesterday's sketch a Title say:   Sleeping Dog.  It would have told the viewer exactly what to see,  instead of leaving the viewer to work it out.    



 I think this is where the Title of a painting or sketch directs people to seeing what the artist wants them to see  .....

it's all in a Title.

  2. Very clever idea Ann - It was a face to me but more of a cartoon character ;-)

  3. Yes, a dog!!! :) But I did not get the 'sleeping' part. You are so right, it's all in a title, funny how easy it gets when the title directs you. You are definitely the queen when it comes to characterizing a subject with a few lines, Ann!

  8. I didn't see the last post but of course there's no mistaking who it is. William is quite famous now you know. I agree with you about the title of a piece...it says it all.

  10. I didn't see the other post first so can't say for sure that I would have guessed "dog" but I think I would have. Getting the face is the most important part. He looks great.

  11. It's all in a title, that is so true. I love these blurry abstract with titles like 'mr Smith is taking his morning stroll'.
