    Nina– LOVE IT! (But I could say that about pretty much all your art work!) You are prodigious lately (where do you get the time, with everything else you do?), but your followers thank you for it. Love, Gale

    This looks excellent. Love how the marks pop out. It’s as if a map maker has gone mad with the map key symbols on the ground itself

      Thanks for your interesting comment. Working on black paper in colored pencil works a lot better than paint–the paper is too thin to hold the paint.

      Perhaps we should have a memadtwo challenge day? Go drawing outdoors but only in the style of N and K?

        I’m game. I’m sure Kerfe is too. Good idea.

          Ah .. but my point is we here take our inspiration from you two there.

          It’s a kind of a tribute but also a structured artistic challenge. I enjoy and admire your posts. I shouldn’t be presumptuous but it seems clear to me that OA feels the same. The two of us know each other through our blogs and met up to draw just after xmas. An issue for me is to take my drawing outside my comfort zone, make me see differently. OA’s way of seeing challenges me and so does each of yours. So I was suggesting we look at landscape but take ideas for building the images from you, as a way to expand our (or perhaps just my) horizons. For example, I might use collage, word groups etc to create an image outdoors: you create in very different ways to me. It would also make me look in more depth at how you each work.

          I put the idea on your blog on the spur of the thought, but it also seemed appropriate to share with you.

          But if you are suggesting we join with you in a shared approach in some way on the same day, I’d be up for that.

    This is gorgeous. I’d love to be able to abstract like this.

    Stitched lines! And the pink sky glows. (K)

    Thanks for the shout out! I love your marks, such great pattern and contrast. I recently got a white pen – opened up a whole new dimension for me!

    This is so cool. I can see all sorts of images here–a giant creature lying on the bank of a river. 🙂
