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

A sad moment

....a poor old seal didn't make it!   Not always fun on the beach.

  1. I suppose the poor things have to die somewhere; we just don't like to see where!

    1. Sad too that we had to leave it there...the ocean would have taken it out when the tide returned.

    1. We had to keep an eye on William in case he thought to do the same thing Rita. Luckily he didn't.
