Sketching William

I thought you might like to see how I go about sketching our lurcher lad, William.  I set up the

camera on a tripod......it still managed to go out of focus for a few seconds grrrr....but overall it

is clear - I zoomed in on me sketching and I think the result gives you the general idea of how I

sketch the lad.

    1. I think it's because I draw him so much, my brain and hand seem to have got themselves organised, lol ;)

  5. How fun that we can watch you sketch William! I love the strange chair below. It looks like if you sit on it you may not be allowed to get up. lol

    1. Thanks Joan, glad I did this now, I wasn't sure to be honest especially when the darned camera didn't focus at first, lol.

    1. Thanks Judy, I have in the past avoided this sort of thing. Although on occasion I may have added the odd video, but I think now Why Not...just show people how I work. So pleased I did and I'm so glad you enjoyed seeing this.
