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

Stuck...


You would think this is easy to work out!

Gap on one side - Closed Gate on the other

But a certain lurcher seems to think the gate needs to be especially opened for him!...and his eye is better!!....but oh no, we still have to make a fuss and expect the gate to be opened for his lordship...




"William, for goodness sake"!

  3. LOL That cracks me up. My question is.. did you open it for him?? LOL
    An even better question would be.. why did they bother to padlock it if you can drive thru the other side..Thanks for my morning chuckle. LOL
    Great sketch by the way.

    1. Answer - No we didn't open it for him, lol.
      Good question on why one side is padlocked...during the Summer when this area gets lOTS AND LOTS of people parking, they open it up as extra parking and the High vehicles can then go down to park. see:

  5. That's so funny. Hard to believe till I used the link.
    Perhaps William is trying to tell you there's no need for the padlock :-)
