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

Goats!



He wasn't sure about these creatures, but still wanted to look at them.  Likewise they weren't sure about him either!!

  2. Good rendition of this. I wasn't much help with Annie as it happened so fast, but then Carrots was just guarding her baby. :)

    1. Aww, poor Annie. Sheep can be pretty vicious when their young are about and have you ever seen them push another ewes lamb Away from them! wow, do they let that lamb know!!! Still, I don't suppose Annie held any hard feelings towards Carrots did she? I was just glad these Goats didn't have a go at William, what with those horns and all.

    2. Yes I did watch the three mamas head butting the other babies away while they were here. Quite hard too. Then they started doing it to each other over food with me in the middle.. yikes. No Annie had no hard feelings. She was just a little more aware from then on. Which was a good lesson to her.

    3. I guess Annie learnt like the baby lambs learnt. Shame you got caught in the middle though Cris, ouch!!

  3. Wow! Those are some long horns on that goat! You were just being cautious, but curious, right William? :). But you're always safe with Mum and Dad!

    1. He was curious Mary, and a little doubtful too. I think for two pins he would have ran off, but braved it out, lol :)

  4. Snip is a little too interested in goats, so I steer clear if I see them!

  8. William probably felt safe on his lead and Dad with him,
    but i wouldn't trust a goat with horns like those!
