Watermelon Festival

Yesterday, I spent the day at the Watermelon Festival. It was very hot but the watermelon was delicious. The streets were full with all sorts people and pooches. Specifically, two pink poodles. I did not have my art journal with me, so I had to come back and document the puppies from memory. One of the poodles has been dyed since last October. When I first saw the woman walking her dog, I thought that it had to do with her Halloween costume (it was in October). Now that almost a year has passed, I realize that she just likes having a pink poodle. I did a little research online because I was concerned for the animals. Apparently the dye in non-toxic and eventually washes out like shampoo. To each his own I guess. You can see my sketch on my Art Journal page. Cheers!
