Artwork to inspire poetry: Sketch of a dog’s head

Sketch of a dog's head

This artwork is a sketch of dog’s head.  It was made using a 4B pencil followed by some computer alteration.  This artwork can inspire poetry in a number of ways.  For example, a poet could write about:

  • The dog
  • Sketching
  • Generalization vs detail (as in a sketch vs a detailed drawing)
  • An artist
  • Lack of emotion (the dog isn’t smiling or looking sad)
