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

  2. Love this!! I saved off a few photos of ..."random" dogs that look like William - not exactly but close - ...I want to try and sketch some. Just had an idea - I have maybe about 40 photos through the months of a dog name Cody (artic wolf dog) who walks around the lake with his owner and he is such a doll - he's older and will go just sit in the water up to his head ..I always take his photo - think I'll draw him soon.

    1. That sounds a good idea Sandy, best to start drawing something you know. With Cody, you obviously see him regularly and that will help. My drawings of William have changed over the years, partly through habit of drawing him and also the pens I use have dictated what they turn out like.

  3. Maybe because William is a welcoming type of person and of course very lovable. Heading over to William's blog.
