    I really hope I can finally do this! 2017 could be the year!! Got notebook and pens at the ready by the back door!

      Me too! I packed an A6 sketchbook and pens ready and I’ve managed to do my first landscape drawing of the 10 days (a very quick one – it was so cold!). So lovely to play with brush pen and a water brush.

      Hester’s sketchbooks and her mark making are so inspiring!

      Good luck Pat and Andrea – yeah I only manage quick ones in this weather. Although I’ve been doing some quick portraits indoors as an excuse to keep out of the cold too! As long as your pencil is moving it’s all useful!

    Fantastic post Hester – You are so clearly an expert and brilliant artist, but wonderful that you make us all feel that we can legitimately give it a go – and I will! Thank you for such an inspiring start to 2017! Best wishes, Sheila (AccessArt)

      Thanks Sheila, that’s very kind. I read an article a while ago about the benefits of keeping a sketchbook, even for people who don’t consider themselves artists. It’s good for your wellbeing to doodle!
