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

  3. Congratulations to you and William! The time has passed so swiftly. I adore all things William but am especially fond of him in Dad's lap. He is one in a million so give him an extra treat today to celebrate!

      Yes, William had one of his special treats today, a doggie choc biscuit, he absolutely LOVES them.

  4. Congratulations and those books are just amazing. My favourites are the one where he's up st the kitchen worktop, the rings of water and his head coming out of the grass. Brilliant Ann - you must be so proud and if you're not, you should be!

  6. Absolutely wonderful Ann. I too, can't believe it's been a whole year. What fun to turn those pages and see your beautiful work. I agree with the other comment - I think you need to find a publisher for "The William the Lurcher" Story books series!
