I was pretty happy with the crop of these two little sweeties, once they were printed out. Well... I guess it would be more accurate to say, once they were printed out for the fourth time! Have you ever had one of those days? My printer is a Canon MP 560. Although their has been much talk of Canons consuming ink, I really do love this printer. It has separate ink tanks, and I keep printing even if the computer says to replace a particular tank. (I have counted and printed 10 extra 8 x 10's the last time by doing that!) Whatever gives the "ink replacement" warning is way ahead of the ink really running out, which is amazingly wasteful. Anyways, my black ink was low, and my photo came out lacking that value. Okay, I expected this eventually. So, I pop in another sheet of photo paper and a black ink cartridge and start the process again. Still no black. What? I ran a third attempt. (Don't ask me why I would even do that. My life mimics the saying that "Haste makes Waste." Ugh!!) After that failed attempt, the light went on above my head... clogged printer nozzle. Duh! This is the first time that has happened with this printer, which I must add is amazing for how little it is used. Anyways, successful fourth print... Yay!
As you can see by the line drawing, one of these little pups has a short and amazingly chiseled hair cut, while the other one is sporting "the Rachel" made popular by Jennifer Aniston during the early days of Friends. LOL (Love the cut, and the Yorkie breed pulls it off so well!) Let me also add... It is a sad day when your subjects have better hair cuts than your own, and they happen to be canines to boot! LOL ;) Back to my point, the contrast in hair styles, along with difference in the size of their heads, will lend itself well to this composition. The finished size of this piece will be 6 1/4 x 10 1/2 inches. The crop will make them appear to be looking out of the drawing, which may be a little bit of a twist on the conventional portrait, but sometimes it is nice to be unconventional right? ;)
Ooops... I have to add...
Happy 4th of July Everyone!! :)
