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

Chase the mouse

... William was such a good boy.  
I told him 'No, leave it' and he stayed 5 inches behind it,
til the mouse got away in the long grass.

"You make me very proud sometimes lad".

    1. Can't believe you remember Morris mouse! Since I drew those I found some one else has done and published a Morris mouse (different drawings obviously and story) but I don't think I would be allowed to do my Morris now....even though mine was done way back and at the time I found no reference to the published version I came across. Perhaps I should call him a different name!
