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

  4. It never ceases to amaze (and make me just slightly envious, lol) how you can communicate sooooo much with so few lines! <3 ;)

    1. Awww, Thanks Robin - I just have a scrap of paper and try out various versions - playing really, so it loosens up my pen...then I limit the time to as quick as possible, that way you automatically limit what you add...and cut it back even more, hence this sketch.
