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. Lovely sketch Ann.
    I've just watched your videos, William was a tad unsure of the little fella. He certainly was a bold little foal :-)

    1. The foal was So cute and so brave. They were in an area that gets a lot of people walking dogs, so I guess the little chap really had grown up seeing dogs on a regular basis and hence was unusually bold :)
