Ms. Raimond has always had a fascination for art. She has worked as an art therapist and web designer, honing her artistic and creative skills. Now she puts most of her energies towards photography. Nature and the wildlife fascinate her, and her snapshots of the outdoor creatures, especially red foxes, illustrate her talent for capturing the allure of the natural environment.

Ms. Raimond also writes professionally about nature and photography, and her work has been featured in several magazines. One of her favorite hobbies is painting, but considering her talent, it may one day become a professional endeavor.

Walking the Dog Drawing

rsz_dachund_walking

I got the idea to do this drawing after seeing the artwork & listening to the soundtrack of one of my favorite films, “Mon Oncle (My Uncle)” by Jacques Tati.

If you haven’t seen it, here’s a link to a funny clip: Kitchen Scene

Anyways, I used a black colored pencil to outline the figures & blue & pink watercolor for color.

I hope that you don’t think this drawing is too Pawful ^^ (I just couldn’t resist making a bad pun.)
