  • This I find exciting. I love everything about bit. Challenge more than met.

  • Thank you very much Gudrun. It’s based on my earlier posting of the Ash tree covered in Ivy, Alan Benton suggested it would be interesting to have a chap smoking his pipe contemplating my question of whether the Ivy and Ash are enemies or companions. Brief met but I could have done better!

  • Lots to like here, Fiona. The wall, fence and incline are just great, and the gent is standing exactly where I would've stood. It tells a story but leaves enough for the viewer to add their bit. Lovely work.

  • Don't know what the challenge was but I love your marks, terrific!

  • Well combined colours and careful detail has paid off Fiona. That little smoker likes it too because he’s paused his walk to contemplate the scene.

  • An unusual choice of medium Fiona??

  • Like this and the colour combo and drawing very good.

  • I didn't think I'd challenged you Fiona, different Alan. Not a problem with the figure, just keep scribbling away to get your confidence up.

    Spurred me on to get a few reed pens cut, just selected a couple of stems from the huge batch you sent me! I simply adore using them, messy, blobs splattered everywhere and fabulous variations of line - what more could an artist ask for?
