Foo Dog

While I work on some large paintings, here’s a small watercolor sketch of a lion dog, also known as a foo dog. It is one of two guardians of the new Chinese garden, opening very soon at the Huntington Library and Gardens in San Marino. According to this article the one I drew is the female because she has a cub underneath her paw. The pair of foo dogs stand by the pathway that leads to the new feature of these beautiful gardens.

    Scary! It’s amazing that there are so many things we can draw/kpaint? I sketched a similar sculpture which was at someone’s front gate in Drumcondra – western beach area of Geelong.
