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

Always there first

Way off in the distance 
even before 
we have stepped on the beach ourselves!

this boy
the beach!


  1. Beautifully captured. Have a terrific Thursday.
    Best wishes Molly

  2. Oh yes, lovely painting with William in the distance.
    They just love the lure of the sea, the sand on their paws
    and the freedom to run and run, and splash about and play.
    Doggy heaven.

    1. Thanks Eileen, yep they Do love it so much...mind you, so do we :)

  3. He sure does. Love how you capture action in this piece too.

  4. Must be great to have the beach all to yourself! Lovely painting, Ann!

    1. It is nice when the beach is empty...of course, now as the season builds up there are more people appearing, usually at weekends.

  5. Oh William you run like the wind ...fun you are!
