Rainy Sunday. No Walkies. What do we do?
We went to Chelsea Waterhouse to admire the beautiful pieces of dog art by Sally Muir
Barnaby and I were truly impressed by how BIG these dogs are! Are they life size?!?!We must avoid this breed – they’re the size of ponies.But really lovely work.And George was feeling very small and intimidated.May’s comment: Have always been a big fan of Sally’s dog portraiture – “her keen understanding of essential doggishness” in whatever technique she uses.
These are both 15 minute sketches that Sally had done of them – for a charity. Some day when I have another wall, maybe she will do something properly of Darcy and George – but George’s portrait won’t need to be too big!
You can see an exhibition of Sally Muir’s dog portraiture at Chelsea Waterside ArtSpace till the 31st October, 2018.
