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

Here's something that happened the other day...

William decided, spoilt  'child'  as he is, that he would sit in the front passenger seat of the car.  (with regard to the sketch remember here in the UK we drive on the left so, no William wasn't sitting in the drivers seat...although!, anyway on with the story.....)

....So on this particular journey, with the lad sitting in what should be My seat, we happened to pass a field with some donkeys in it.  Hubby thought he would point them out and said to William... "Look there's some donkeys over there" and pointed to them.  With that William turned and looked out of the window and watched these donkeys as we drove past!!  

Driver and front seat passenger in a little conversation world all of their own.  They seemed to have forgotten me sitting in the back....oh well.
