Dogs' Dynamism - Sarah McCunney

Dogs are creatures that are always on the move. For as long as humans have been creating art, dogs have been their companions, so it's not surprising that our beloved best friends have been a focus in our art for centuries. This gallery includes photographs, paintings, statues, and other various mediums of dogs in motion.

Pes beziaci v burke Dog dunning in the Storm is a painting of a small dog running under a dark, stormy sky. The dog is running toward the lighter part of the sky, frantically seeking a safe place. Blurred brush strokes in the dogs' fur imply movement. With wide eyes, four legs mid-air, and a hanging tongue, this dog is one of the most dynamic dogs in the bunch.
A Dog is an Oriental painting of a dog whose body is twisted. The dog's snarled face and nose are shown laterally, but his eyes seem to catch that of the viewer's. The design principle, movement, guides your eyes to the few humps on his back before his legs and tail spiral behind him. For a brief second, it may be perceived that he is scratching an itch. Whatever he's doing, A Dog is most definitely not sitting still.
Dog with a Corncob is a terracotta ceramic statue of a dog, perched in his usual playful position, with a corn of cob. His ears are pointed and his teeth are bared; he has a big, round belly and a large, chunky tail. It's hard to tell if he's about to pounce on the corn or tear into it, but it's the anticipation and potential energy that makes this dog dynamic.
Howling Dog is an oil painting of a dog howling at the moon. Surrounding him is a nighttime sky, trees, the moon, and the dog's howl, visualized in colors that swarm around him. All of the lines are connected and have round edges, which creates rhythm. Howling Dog is dynamic because you can see his sound waves.
Cast of a Dog Killed by the Eruption of Mount Vesuvius, Pompeii is a photograph of a dog cast in ash. He is writhing in pain; the top of his head touches the ground, his front legs stick straight up in the air, and his mouth is open. The photograph is sepia tone, and the dog is the lightest tonal value in the photo, which makes him stand out. The dark negative space that surrounds him makes him seem alone in his pain.
With My Dog is a gouache painting on paper from the International Museum of Children's Art. It features Inderjitkaur W. Bhuji walking her dog on a leash outside. They both have wide mouths and lots of teeth, although it looks like they're growling rather than smiling. The dog's reddish-brown fur and Bhuji's tan body pop against the blue and yellow background, bringing them to life.
Dog chasing a kangaroo is a watercolor painting of a greyhound-type dog running through tall grass, chasing a kangaroo that is hopping toward the mountains in the horizon. The viewer's eye movement starts at the dog as he leaps in the air and travels to the kangaroo that is kicking off the ground. It is obviously a high speed chase, but it's hard to tell who is winning, which makes this painting exciting and dynamic.
Dog sitting on a table is a portrait of a dog that dates to the early 1850s. He is garnished with a collar and is sitting pretty atop a table. The emphasis is on the dog's face, which is a little soft due to motion blur and the inability to sit still. That alone makes this dog dynamic!
Landscape with Flock of Sheep and a Dog is an engraving of a sheepherder and his dog herding a flock of sheep down a path toward a forest. Many curved lines make the path windy, catching the viewer's eye and flowing like waves. Although the dog is not the focus of this piece, his is still an integral part of making sure the herd is moving along.
Dog eat dog is an acrylic painting on canvas of a dog with a tiny ushanka eating a hot dog. The half-eaten hot dog is flying toward the dog's curled, awaiting tongue, and his hat is nearly falling off his head. The yellow in the bottom, left corner brings emphasis to the hot dog and the dog's tongue. Will he even manage to catch the hot dog? The suspense is too much.
