About Sketching William.......

About these sketches....I have various techniques for capturing William. Sometimes I do a very quick pen outline (just to remind me of his pose) ~ Other times I take a photo and work from that ~ and when he stands still long enough I'll do a complete sketch en plein air ~ All the drawings are things he has been up to, good or naughty! They are a permanent reminder of those little bitty 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

How does he know when dad is about to arrive home...

...he may have been out for over an hour, but William always seems to know when he's about to pull into the driveway.

  1. It's a sixth sense, Annie has it too. It's amazing how they know these things, but they do!

  2. Just saw a segment on the news about how dogs "tell time". It only discussed dogs indoors waiting for their people to return home. Their sense of smell is so well developed, they can tell how long it has been since the people were in the house and develop a sense of how much scent is left when the people are due home! I couldn't explain how this explains a short and not-regular absence.

    I enjoy your sketches and posts about William So much!

    1. That is interesting to know. I think they could teach us a lot, although I think perhaps William already has us trained! .... Really pleased you like the sketches :)

  3. I saw an interesting piece on TV the other day. Something to do with how long your scent stays in the house after you are away is how they figure when you will be home. Don't know how true it is, but apparently they had various house pets on closed camera surveillance.

    1. William definitely knows the sound of the car. In fact he even knows the sound of our son's van! (Why am I even surprised!! Lol)
