About Sketching William.......

About these sketches....I have various techniques for capturing William. Apart from quick pen outlines to remind me of his pose, I will take a photo and work from that. When he stands still long enough, I'll do a complete sketch en plein air ~ All the drawings are things he has done and been up to, good or naughty, all forming a permanent reminder of those little things in life that makes having him so worthwhile. I admit not all the drawings are complete or perfect in any way, but when I originally set out to capture him, I decided they would be fun and to get too hung up on perfection would take away that fun. I hope you enjoy seeing them......ann

    1. Yes Jan it is!...prompted by your comment yesterday, I wondered if I could do a sketch from a photo on the internet (hope you didn't mind). So much easier with William as knowing him gives me more insight to character, but I was quite pleased with this.

    1. Thanks Robin - yes, sometimes he's a good model...with this one he actually came up to my desk and looked to see what I was doing, which gave me the idea of putting him in the drawing too:)
