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

Oh please - the polar opposite of wanting to go home.

We had been on the beach playing tennis ball,
Up and Down the beach
In and Out of the sea
and the minute William thinks we are leaving
what does he do?

He Stands in the Sea and STAYS THERE
Refusing to come Out
just because he knows it's home time.

I little bribery was called for on this occasion
(as with many occasions like this)

"D I N N E R   AND   P R E Z Z I E S"
we shout!

That worked.


  1. Stubborn is the word. Bribery is the way to go, works every time :)

    1. And I think he knows it, which is even more weird. 😆

  2. LOLOL!!! typical solution for dealing with an obstinate 2 yr old! LOL ♥
    love the look on his face here. perfect!

    1. It's like trying to trick a wagon load of monkeys 😆

  3. You'd think they would catch on after a while..... ;)

  4. Either he is ready to go home. Or not!
    No happy medium with that one!
