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

The Decorators Assistant

I have probably mentioned this before, but we thought of this the other day as we were passing a decorator up a ladder.  We made sure William was out of the way, as a few years ago, he did this.....

Oh yes, he got hold of a decorators cloth, whilst the decorator was Up the Ladder, and started to pull it! oh yes!.......thankfully we stopped him just in time!


  1. Oh no William!!!!.
    Thankfully you prevented a nasty accident! I wonder how the painter would have explained that to his insurance company in the event of a claim :-)
