Sketching Dexter

I went through a couple of my sketchbooks and compiled some of the Dexter sketches I have done. I don’t draw him nearly as much as I should, but I will admit that he is hard to paint due to being so black, no distinguishing spots or color variations. His ears are fun to capture with pen and ink. He has great wild hair on the backs of his legs. He is a flat coat retriever, pure bred and the biggest in his family….most of his family lives in the neighborhood so I speak the truth. He is strong, but he is a big baby. I see him riding a bike in the near future.
