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

  8. I love William's dreams. I think mine dreams of chasing bunnies - her feet kick and she woofs in her dreams. So sweet. Happy PPF

  10. I often wonder what my dog dreams about as he has such vivid dreams... always talking and snuffling... kind of think he is chasing his nemesis bird that is always giving him grief in our back garden... getting his revenge in his dreams maybe... William looks pretty content though...xx

  16. As I write this, my puppy is under my feet snoring away and jerking. I often wonder about our dogs dream about, I suspect by all the jerking they are chasing something. :)
