We met Cpl Sunsette Winsler, and her tracker dog "Bella," and LCpl James Nemger, and his IED dog, "Cezar II."
We photographed them as they sat with the dogs and tried to have the dogs sit for us as we sketched. We sketched as good and as fast as we could, and had moderate success. What started as a dog portrait session quickly turned into a rapid draw gesture drawing session, where the sketches became more like impressions than portraits! But I think we captured a bit of the personalities of the dogs, if not the exact likeness!
