progression of a Painted dog

For my next piece I decided to go for a wild dog from one of my own photos. This time I wanted to focus on the subject with no distracting background, in a style similar to that of Sue Dickinson. For the drawing and detail, I used my right hand but then when it came to the blocking in and less detailed work, I ended up using my left hand. With my left hand it seemed to be a lot easier and allowed me more control. Slowly but surely, I was becoming a lefty.
