Despite that, I am enjoying the challenge and am planning to continue, with the aim of ending up with a total of 365 images. … Continue reading A selection of pen sketches…

Feeling inspired by this, and following completion of my 365-day photo project, I am ready for a new challenge! This year, once again commencing on the 1st November, I have decided to create … Continue reading 365 Days of Art!
