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

  11. This series is wonderful! What a charming and inspirational guy you have there!

    BTW would you mind linking to the actual post for Paint Party Friday rather than your blog - it makes it very difficult when you are posting so often, for late visitors to figure out what post you submitted. Thanks!
