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

The certain look that tells us very clearly he wants to go into the sitting room after his walk....... when he gets home dripping wet!!!     He will stand very squarely by the door Looking the way he wants to go!!!

Until he is dry....clearly you can guess our answer!


  1. Oh dear William they don't let you go and dry yourself on the soft furnishings? Have a terrific Tuesday.
    Best wishes Molly

  2. Like his expression and the added color in this sketch :)

  3. William knows where to get dried off. :)We keep towels by the doors and Annie cant go past them before she gets her feet wiped. Even more so when all wet. She stops and waits too. The slight color draws you into the room giving it depth.

    1. Thanks Cris, glad you liked this. yes, we have a towel handy for William too, but he tries so hard to tell us he should lay on the settee to dry off!!! (I don't think so) lol.

  4. Ah yes, I remember that.........lol
