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

  7. Poor boy! You should make them/ask them to take your pillows/cushions from home when you travel. No hard floor for you!!! Happy weekend to all.

  10. there is no way my mutt would stand from being banned from cushions... in fact as we speak he is curled up on one he dragged off the lounge and bought into the studio... which is quite an effort as he is half the size of the pillow... was so funny watching him try to drag it down the hall...
    love your painting... you have captured the sulk so perfectly... xx
