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

  1. Yep round and round and make sure you play walnut whip with the blankie too. Have a super saturday.
    Best wishes Molly

  2. William, have nothing but the sweetest of dreams in your cozy, soft, safe bed. And an early happy 2013

  3. Is it his way of telling you that maybe your bed would be more comfortable? :-)

  4. I know just how he feels. I toss and turn all night too! LOL

  5. I am a tosser and turner too, so I understand him perfectly! Great sketches, Ann, I love the way you draw the roughness and curlyness of his coat!

    1. Thanks Judy.....I call it 'scribbling' for his coat (laugh) :)
