Important dates!


Hello everyone, so the first day of my new 30 day sketching challenge will be July 30th 2018 and the last day will be August 28th. This is exciting because it will involve me sketching and blogging from here in Norway, some from Hampshire in England and then more from a family holiday in Croatia. I am sure I will have to include some sketches made while travelling.

Countdown to the 30 day challenge..

Well, the site isn’t totally right and I’ve been having some mini-nightmare scenarios but I think it’s time to just start this challenge…. I am going to plan the 30 day schedule today and post the actual start date later on this evening…. fingers crossed!!

Do I really need my desktop computer for this???


If I’m on holiday and without my desktop computer  can I still blog?

The short answer is yes!!!! When I checked my calendar I had a horrible thought- I go to England and then Croatia in August for a week a piece and this means if I can only blog via the iMac I’ll have to wait until late August or early September to start my thirty day challenge.

This took the wind out of my sails because I was starting to make a big build up in my mind over this whole thing 😳….. so I decided to experiment and won’t bore you with the details but….. I took the photos of me trying to operate my posh new camara remotely from my phone! I’ve uploaded them remotely from the camera to my phone and put them into this blog on my phone!!!! I’m so pleased!! So if I get it to work outside as I’d need it to on location then I’m virtually ready to go and I can stop my pathetic procrastinating and do it!!

Right I’m gonna celebrate with a cup of English black tea ☕

Getting ready for the challenge!!!

Only a few more things to do until I think I’m ready to start going out and sketching then blogging about it…please bear with me 🙂

Here’s whats happening, I’ve got my little green notebook which I’m using to jot ideas down, I have to take a few photos (with my cool new camera) of me out there working on some artwork, sorry to admit this but that means I have to get myself trained up on the art of using my camera. I believe I can set it up and operate it remotely with my phone….now wouldn’t that be cool?!

Another thing I need to roughly plan, perhaps for the first five days at least , is a list places I want to go and basic ideas for subjects. I live in Stavanger Norway and the little harbour could provide so much opportunity, I might have to take my dog though….
