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

Okay, so a little fact you may be unaware of with William:

He doesn't like Smoke!

either with smokers, or even a bonfire....

he sneezes when he walks past them...

which he did the other day when we walked

past a smoker outside of a pub!

It can be highly embarrassing when said

smoker wants to say hello to him!


  1. That made us chuckle. Have a super Saturday.
    Best wishes Molly

  2. Oh, you must tell smokers that William is allergic and give them a wide berth,
    must be horrid for him having smoke puffed near his face :(

    1. They wonder why he doesn't want to stop and say hello to them, lol :-)

  3. Allergy or not so subtle comment.......? ;)

    1. Nope, we are up front and say that he doesn't like smoke (or bonfires) and explain that we think we have an eco friendly dog!...they usually laugh and admit he is right ;)
