A year of #Momentsketchers.

Back in January I decided to combine my love for the outdoors with my love for art, and by serendipity I came across Candace Rose Rardon’s #momentsketchers challenge.  What started out as just a monthly ‘drawing challenge’, has for me and the other participants  blossomed in to a lovely, friendly, positive community on Instagram.  It has been a wonderful, life changing experience. Here are my monthly sketches from 2017, please click on the links to Instagram and you can see how the group grew and how inclusive and supportive the community is.  I’m excited to see the group grow and blossom in 2018, it’s the first one of 2018 this weekend (6-7th January), why not join in?
