2017 in Pictures

I remembered the other day that at least once in the past I’ve created a blog post at this time of year showing a photo from each month as a sort of review. Although I haven’t made much time this year just for taking photographs I still had a lot on my phone and in my camera so I thought I’d share one from each month – most of which I haven’t shared before –  to round off the year.

There’s also a little update at the end of this post so don’t miss that!

From midnight tonight (New Year’s Eve 2017) there’s going to be a big sale in my Etsy shop. Everything’s included apart from digital downloads, so the special deals I’m already offering on prints and cards will be discounted even further.

I won’t be replacing anything that sells out because I’m planning on creating some brand new products for my shop in 2018. You can bookmark your favourites before January 1st to make it easier to find them once the sale begins.

Finishing Touches and Playing With Colour

Line drawing of St Pauls Cathedral

At the end of last week I finished the 20 Minutes a Day Challenge. I drew for 20 minutes a day, 5 days a week for 2 weeks, and added 9 new drawings to my sketchbook, including this one of St Paul’s Cathedral.

I also made a start on a 10th drawing which I finished on Monday this week (and I spent a bit longer than 20 minutes doing that).

Working for only 20 minutes each day was a challenge because I have a tendency to push myself. Sometimes I push myself too much and either get exhausted, or more “Finishing Touches and Playing With Colour”
