last year too - they're about all that are flowering at this green, green time of year. Painted very messily and feeling out of watercolour practice, they do come with my very best wishes for a 2011 that brings you everything that you'd wish for yourselves and your loved ones. May it be a richly satisfying creative year!
I haven't made any hard and fast plans, I am doing an oil painting course that spans the year in four sessions, though I don't think I'll be blogging about it, because of copyright clauses on the course material, but also because I want to just do the work without talking too much about it or seeking advice or your valued comments this time - maybe at the end of it I'll show the results. It may mean fewer (even less!) blog posts, but I want to try and keep the blog true to it's name, just sketching, when I can. One plan that did come about in 2010 was finding a couple of like-minded sketchers to join me on expeditions, which will help me get out of my comfy cocoon and into the world.
Thank you to all my visitors, and the lovely friends I've made here, for your feedback and time. As with some other bloggers, I have been posting and commenting less, not due to lack of interest but just trying to juggle a way to spend less time on the computer and more in the studio, or out sketching. For some reason it takes me an inordinately long time to compose blog posts and comments - my muddled brain battling to sort thoughts and words into a legible state, so I might be writing less to go with the pictures... if I remember... I can also babble on regardless, which I'm doing right now. So without further ado, HAPPY NEW YEAR, let's get going!!!
