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. Aw, I know that expression. When Chocolatte' can't go with her dad, she does the same thing and stays that way till he gets home. She is so angry for not being able to go that she turns her back on him. Can you believe that? She does.:) Great drawing. Give William a hug.

  5. William is saying..How dare he go without me. When either of us leave the house alone without Annie, she pouts and wont play just keeps watch on the door, but when we get back she grabs a squeaky toy and brings for us as an offering. She never holds a grudge. Last time she was like a spring jumping up and down behind the fence when I came home. They are all so funny about their 'pack' being split up. Good drawing Ann.

  6. Absolutely BRILLIANT sketch, Ann! This reminds me of the ancestor portraits hanging in the great estates in your country. You should have it enlarged and framed and hang it in your ‘great estate’!
