Sketching William sketches of a scruffy hound

The sketches.......I have various techniques for sketching William. A quick pen outline ~ sometimes I will take a photo and work from that ~ or, when he stands still long enough, I'll do a completed drawing.

I draw what he gets up to, no matter what the finished drawing looks like. I hope you enjoy seeing them......ann

Beware - Adders!

...."Now listen up lad"

It's the time of year when the adders are about, so we explain to him that he needs to watch out -and we think he listens.  We saw one yesterday and when he realised he backed away. 

So he had listened to us - good lad!


  1. How could you have ever underestimated him???

    1. I know, we are terrible parents! lol :-)

  2. oh my!
    are your adders there poisonous?
    at least with our rattlers there is a warning of them shaking their tails.
    but william is so SMART!

    1. Yes they are poisonous Tammy, the only one we have like that in the UK. William knows now to watch out for them and we warn him too, obviously as in the drawing here, but when he was 6 months old he got bitten! It was only a young adder, but still as venomous and luckily we got him to the vets - he was on anti-venom and liquids within an hour of the bite. Some dogs aren't that fortunate to get help quick.
