Sketching William sketches of a scruffy hound - and sometimes I add a little orange terror called Hamish

The sketches....... often a quick pen outline ~ sometimes a photo and work from that.

I draw what he gets up to, no matter how the finished drawing looks. I hope you enjoy seeing them......ann

Look back at sketches

From time to time I look back through my blog here.  Came across this one and initially I cringed at it. Not because of the subject but because of the application!  Then I thought ‘hey, it doesn’t matter what it looks like’, thing is, it’s a piece of History.  A reminder that brings a memory of this special little dog who had been in our lives.  Hamish.  As you see from the drawing, he was wearing glasses, always up for joining in with our fun.

Another memory

Looking back again at this blog.  Way back in 2017 I did this sketch.  I do look back and think I should have spent more time on the drawing/painting but then it wouldn’t have been spontaneous and that was the thing I was after.

Looking back at a post

This was back in 2017, oh my!

A William moment when he HAD to pose for a photo, of course.  Wish he was still here to do the same, but alas life moves on doesn’t it.  

The Wooden Fox sculpture.

(Can’t remember where this was, but no doubt one of the many

National Trust properties we visit)

NOTE…. I have set this blog for no comments, it’s becoming difficult to keep up with these older blogs, but I do hope you like seeing the occasional posts still.

 A quick comment for those who have so kindly commented.  Basically I missed seeing your recent comments, we have been super busy, so my apologies for this lack of efficiency.   Bear with me and I will be adding some ‘looking back’ posts shortly.

When I used to sketch William

Basically if you are reading this, then I am amazed!  And have to say Thank You for still keeping this blog on your list.  

The reason I’m popping in to add here is that apparently Blogspot will close off ‘dormant’ blogs if they haven’t been used for 2 years!  So in order to keep this blog ticking, I’m adding something every so often.

Probably added this sketch online somewhere before, but some of you may recognise the ‘grand dog’ Dottie.
