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

Sit down strike....

...can you believe that if a walker (or better still a walker with a dog) is way off in the distance behind us...William will Refuse To Move until they catch up with us!!!!



  so frustrating sometimes

  2. That's very odd...but Annie hates anyone behind her and she doesn't like dogs approaching her or passing past her. She stands still and has a bark at them! We always thought it must be to do with her unknown past.
    Must be a lurcher thing then :-)
    I've never known what goes on in a dogs head :-)

    1. I guess Annie thinks..'I was here first!' They are funny. William will be quite happy with some dogs, and others he will really have a go at! There just seems no rhyme or reason to it.

  3. hehe! Stevie will keep turning around and looking at them, sometimes gives them a good bark! I think she finds it disconcerting having them where she cant see them! beautiful sketch xxx

  4. To funny.. Never heard that before. Annie is lead dog .. she pulls to be out front. Doesn't do my back any good. Never could break her of that either.. she minds very well for most everything else but walks are on her terms. lol wonderful sketch.
