In a previous post I mentioned that William used to have a thing about chasing bees. I guess it was the buzzing that got his attention. Well, in my collection of sketchbooks I found this picture I had done of him looking at one such bee.
I had hurriedly got my pencil outlining in and then went over with my pen.
This in turn led me to looking through some of my other old sketchbooks and I found one from 1998 (is it really 13 years ago). We had been on a cruise - at the time a much needed and restorative break for our family - and as usual I had taken my sketchbooks. The opportunity to just sit and rest on a cruise gave me the excuse, as if I needed one, of sketching. I thought I would post some of them.
It would seem I didn't waste ink with these sketches
........and this chap was absorbed in filming something. I couldn't resist sketching him, I think it was his shape - yes he really was portly in stature - but how come men always have such slim legs?
I am really glad I had kept these sketchbooks, they have brought back some good memories.
