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

"You found dad then"

(believe me, he can jump up like this in one go)


  1. LOLOL!!!
    the question is . . .
    how does dad keep from falling over!!! ♥♥

    1. I've no idea, lol...he just seems to balance enough to catch William. We've been out shopping when William does this 'jump up into dad's arms' and you hear people gasp. (it's a wonder William and Graham don't get a round of applause)!

  2. It's a wonder William doesn't bowl his Dad over!

  3. Boy, that is one big baby :-)

    1. Yes, indeed that is the reaction heard around us. Picture the scene Sandy....Dad and William wait for me whilst I go shopping, then (and to be fair) I stay with William whilst Graham shops (well, he has a look around the shops!)...but when he comes back, William is so delighted to see him, that he literally "jumps up into dad's arms"....not rehearsed, completely spontaneous reaction on William's part - and all credit to Graham for catching him, lol...and needless to say, the passersby gasp and usually say "Awwww".

      Oh such is life with a lurcher ;)
