Apologies once again for the lack of contact. It has been an eventful year so far, to say the least. My Mother-In-Law had a very bad fall the day after New Year and we’ve been back and forth to the Hospital ever since. I’ve also been recovering from a bad cold during the last week and haven’t felt like doing anything. My YouTube channel is also lacking updates. I haven’t published anything new on there since November last year. I have managed to paint this scene of Grassington though. It’s painted on a new (to me) paper which is Fabriano Artistico. It behaves a lot like Arches paper, but is considerably cheaper. Perhaps not quite as robust, but I shall be using it again as I had 5 sheets for Christmas as a present. Once againg I’m Indebted to Sandie Bell, who takes such wonderful photos. Hopefully it won’t be so long until the next blog.
