Young Lady in a Boat

A few weeks ago we shared an artistic post with paintings of men with their dogs, but this time it’s all about the women & we found a wide variety of woman & dog paintings to share.

Portrait of Federico II GonzagaThe old saying says that dog is a man’s best friend and while it’s been amended by most (female) dog lovers to include those of the fairer sex, it is a true statement nonetheless.

Lovers of All

We like to think of dogs as equal opportunity pals, they like people of all walks of life. However the images below do show us clearly the bond that develops between a man and his dog – or in some cases, an artist and their dog.

Honing Skill

Many modern artists (of both male & female persuasion) use animals as the core of their art, honing and perfecting each bit of muscle & hair. It’s interesting to guess which of these artists loved dogs & which ones painted them only because they were being paid to.

Dog Breed Coloring PagesDogs bring out the artist in many of us, which is why we were so excited to run across a number of line drawings that are just begging to be colored in.

In fact, we found so many of them that we have been slowly sharing them with our readers. It’s always fun to have something to look forward to. If you haven’t seen part 1, be sure to check it out.

Today’s images are all large enough to offer a medium and a large size and all of them offer a unique way to learn about different dog breeds.

Grannonia and the fox

Grannonia and the fox – Warwick Goble

Recently we’ve become obsessed with art (canidae art that is) and we’ve slowly been sharing our findings with dog lovers everywhere.

Today we take an artistic look at pretty little foxes, who are actually more of a cousin to domestic dog as they are not of grey wolf ancestry.

Dog Breed Coloring PagesAnother installment of our dog breed coloring pages & this week we are featuring line drawings of a Bull Terrier, a Pug and a Collie.

We were so happy to find so many breeds for coloring because it’s an artistic way to learn some of the physical traits different breeds are known and bred for.

Although we love all of today’s breeds, unfortunately we couldn’t find a larger Bull Terrier or Collie. Sorry, you’ll have to test your fine coloring skills.
