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

Talk on the mobile


....Every time this happens, I kid you not.
William wants to listen to the 
person on the other end of the conversation.

  1. Ha, I have the opposite problem with my cat. When I sit with her in the evenings, if I dare to scroll through my phone she nudges my hand off it and on to her head!! Great William illustration as always Ann.

    1. That must be so annoying when you are trying to do something with your phone...funny though (sorry). Cats have a way of demanding (come to think of it so do Lurcher's) lol :-)

  7. Hi Ann. I still love William as always. He is listening because he doesn't want to hear you say that you'll be right there. He's keeping tabs on you so that he can go to. tee hee. Your paintings of William and his life could be made into a movie. Take care, awesome work. My regards to William.

  9. They are human...I swear they know exactly what's going on. The poodle we babysit is very high strung we always tell her exactly what we are doing otherwise she starts freaking out... hey it works. Plus if you tell her to find any individual she will run up stairs and get that person, even if they are sleeping!! Love them!!
