Balancing act

I had to sketch fast to capture this one and then quickly splashed in color after they were long gone down the beach path. I could not believe this cute little dog was comfortably sitting on this 2' x 2' wooden platform attached to back of this guys bike. What a good dog—anjing bagus!

Beautifully done; I can almost feel the hot sun on my face. Very lively scene with gorgeous warm colours!

What a great watercolor.

The light in this is fantastic! And the drawing is loose and free...perfect!

Cute! Near me there's a chap whose mini fox terrier rides in a milk crate on a motor scooter. (I think it's on my Flickr page)

Lovely subject. I can understand why you wanted to capture them, and you certainly did. It's an adorable vignette.

Oh, I'd have been a nervous wreck with that dog there! I love this, Jennifer. I see Charles Reid influence in this one, too! and that's a good thing, for sure.

Oh my gosh Jennifer, I just discovered your work on your blog and think your work is amazing! I love pen and ink combined with some watercolor and you have a wonderful quality to your ink line and use just the right amount of watercolor.

You are the quick sketch artist, aren't you?
