Sketching William sketches of a scruffy hound - and sometimes I add a little orange terror called Hamish

The sketches....... often a quick pen outline ~ sometimes a photo and work from that.

I draw what he gets up to, no matter how the finished drawing looks. I hope you enjoy seeing them......ann

Toy duck shocker!!!

Strange that I can remember his exact expression back with this one.  The toy duck had a squeaker inside it, when pressed...Yes, it made a noise.   William hadn't realised this innocent looking soft toy would do that.

Admittedly I had trouble trying to, show in a drawing, his expression of shock/surprise, so went for 'comic exaggerated'.   

A nice little reminder again from the days when the lad was giving us a laugh.

Cuddles with dad

They enjoyed their little moments over the years.  In this sketch they were relaxing in the sunshine, from the back it always looked cute.

 I might be a little slow adding Comments and Responding this week, our Internet has changed and we are experiencing the usual hiccups associated with it!!!!

Sorry about this, but I am still getting online intermittently, and I don’t like giving up 🤣

Another one of my early sketches of William online.  I had been sketching him for about 4 years Before I added them 'online' but didn't keep them (they were so bad 🤣) - even with the online ones: some of them make me cringe now, they were so 'basic', but isn't that the curse of an artist, we are our worst critics! ;)    

I so remember this 'Beegate incident', (again a sketch that takes me back / so true that sketches and paintings are memories that take you back to the moment, somehow photographs don't hold that magic).  With this, William watching a Bee that decided to buzz around him.  He couldn't make it out, but watched....I did wonder what was going through his mind at the time 🐝

Car Trip

Anyone remember this sketch from way back?   When I find these, I can remember where we were.

William loaded into the car, I had my sketchbook, so quickly sketched him looking back and waiting for me to get into the car too  - added some detail later - we were out for the day.
