Day 4 - Arthur's Seat across the allotments

I particularly like mountain in distance

It’s freezing out there Margaret.. well done 👍🏻

Energetic sketch Margaret I can tell you were eager to get home:). I like it.

Well done Margaret, this is great drawing practice, a few to go yet!

Like it very much, Margaret.

Like the immediacy of this Margaret, you very brave soul😨.

I like it , may be I will have a go myself.

Spontaneous and very good .

Thank you Frances - Arthur's Seat is not actually very high and is in Edinburgh, surrounded by housing estates! It is very distinctive and we are very lucky to have it here :) Thank you Rachel and Carole - yup, it was a very quick sketch!!! Thank you Alan, Mia and Carole :) Thank you Annick - You should have a go - would be good to have somebody else doing this :) Thank you Richard :)

Smashing , lively drawing Margaret . My G daughter and I contemplated going out but chickened and satinthe cosy kitchen with coffee and pizza . Brave lady .

I’m in awe of your perseverance have a good cross section of interesting sketching marks, especially directional marks. You’re doing great!

You brave thing going out in the cold but it was worth it, you've got a great sketch here Margaret.

Thank you Sylvia :) Wind was chilly but there was no frost so it could have been a lot worse!

Thank you Fiona :) Not much perseverance required yet - only day 4 - but we'll see how it is next week! Everybody here is being very polite - I can think of one or two people who would have called it a scribble! Thank you Margaret :) I wasn't out for long!

Good variety of marks and lines, with loads of immediacy. Very nicely done!

Hang on Studio Wall
