A Sketch A Day 2021

Inkuary 2021.jpg

From 1 January to 31 December 2021 I am producing a sketch every day. Conceived as an idea during lockdown it includes a number of urban sketches done from life, but practicalities dictated that most would be done from photographic references.

 

Not just any photographs. These had to be taken by myself or my wife when we were travelling in the time before Covid. They are a record of the places we have visited and the things we have seen. Composed in the camera on the spot and then sketched from the screen without any setting up. Just pen and/or watercolour.

The series sketched in October were all done and posted as part of Inktober using the 'official' prompts but not always obviously. Thesey are all in ink only but will probably be coloured after the year is over unless someone wants one in black and white.

 

To reserve one or more of the sketches please contact me HERE with your email address. I will respond letting you know if they are still available. (A red dot indicates that they have been reserved.)

In January I will ask for £5 to cover the cost of postage and packing (any P&P money left over will go to the charity) and a donation (of however much you think appropriate) to be made to the edenprojects.org Madagascar reforestation project. A screenshot of the receipt will help me keep track of progress, and allow a final total of trees planted to be posted.

edenprojects.org help to replace the tree cover that has been lost in Madagascar, to give employment to the desperately poor population and guide them toward more sustainable agricultural practices. As a result of this everyone on the planet benefits.

Donating is easy. Their website allows payment of one-off or regular donations, and they can be targeted at specific projects.

The things that we witnessed when we visited Madagascar in 2018 demonstrated the worth of the reforestation project.
