"Sir William", Animals theme, Lynn Cohen




I had such fun drawing "Sir" William, Ann Hyde's wonderful WilliamtheLurcher from a photo she posted on her Facebook page. I have fallen in love with William and his stories Ann paints so wonderfully in watercolors. So I felt like I knew him intimately when I started hair by hair to draw him here. In the second picture I added a bit of color with Tom Bow brushes and Spectrum noir gray markers.

Thank you Ann for giving me permission to post William. He's over at Sketchbook Skool too now and he's gotten rave reviews from many students there! I am so proud.

  1. He is wonderful. I feel like you know him too Lynn, even though I don't know him! There's something very knowing in that kind eye of his.

  12. A striking sketch, so full of life, and the touch of colour and grey in the second version is great.
