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

'sometimes a lurcher has to hold down a blanket'


  1. And sometimes a lurcher has to carefully watch the insides of his eye lids! :-)

  2. I do so adore your sketches and wonder if any will ever be for sale. I live in the states. Thanks

    1. Thanks Marilyn, it's nice to know you like the sketches.

      I have done a lot of these sketches on very cheap paper, which I don't think would be so good to actually sell, but will always repeat them on a better quality watercolour paper if anyone asked.

  3. You captured this very well! :)
