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

    but if ever there was good medicine... it's that beloved lad lying right beside you!

  6. Thanks everyone...your good wishes are much appreciated. I'm getting better, albeit slowly. Flu is a sneaky little critter, it makes you think you are better and then it comes back and gets you again! grrrr. I'll keep you posted ;)

  7. Hi Ann! I just wanted to stop by and let you know that I'm thinking about you -- I'd seen that you'd not been feeling well, and see by your comment above, that you're better-- Great news!! Continued healthy vibes coming to you from my corner of the US, that you're soon back to sketching and enjoying the new year!! Take care!

    1. Thanks Kim, yes I'm on the mend, not completely there yet, but feeling much better than I was...phew! :-)
