6"x6" dip pen and wash on aquaboard
Ink: Sennelier Walnut Stain
Subject is Gigi, an adorable, elderly, stubby-legged mutt dog rescued by dear friends a number of years ago.

I took several photos of Gigi while I was dog-sitting over the holiday, and when I got home pulled them up on my computer. I first sketched the drawing in pencil, then inked it with a croquille dip pen. This was my first occasion using aquaboard, which took the ink very nicely. The next day I used a round brush to apply the same ink in a wash. Again, I was extremely happy with how the aquaboard took the media.

What race would this be?

She's a stubby-legged, long-haired mutt dog. Her person is an anthropologist involved in a genetic research project seeking to determine when dogs evolutionarily deviated from wolves, so she had Gigi tested. The test only shows the mother's side, but there it's pomeranian, dashound, and beagle. My bet is that on the dad's side is at least a little Australian shepherd due to the nature of her fur coat. Since Gigi is a rescue there is no way to know in detail what her ancestry is.
