    This is a good idea.
    Interesting to see a year’s development in landscape and I feel privileged to have shared the first day of that years drawing.

    • I’d forgotten that was a year ago – haven’t forgotten the numb fingers though! When I get back let’s book the next sketch trip in. I will be in need of some concentrated sketching. It is good to lay it all out or video it if it’s in a sketchbook.

  2. https://polldaddy.com/js/rating/rating.jsYou have been a contestant and consistent source of inspiration for me this year. When I couldn’t, you did. When I did, you still created.
    Hard work!

    • Thanks Barry – spurs me on for 2018. Last year I made a conscious commitment to make time for art and it certainly paid off. Need to look at my priorities for the coming year next. Art’s going to be up there again.

    • Thanks Barry. I too feel I have inspiration at my fingertips through the blogs I follow. Someone, somewhere is always challenging themselves. Best wishes for 2018. OA

  3. I made a typo. Constant – not contestant.

    It’s been a good art year for you, I’d say. Here’s to 2018, in anticipation! 😁

  5. Your blog has been a real inspiration to me too, OA! Looking forward to seeing lots more in 2018!

  6. You have covered a lot of ground! Bravo!!!
