With the Rydal Water adult colouring book almost complete I can't help but reflect on progress so far. I hope my drawings have improved along the way, and I think I'm finding my own style the more I work on paper. This one was particularly tricky because the barn was made from thousands of old stones and the layout was intricate with a different sense of perspective too. I'm not quite sure I mastered it yet, but only time will tell, I'm sure by the time people colour in the page they will be able to bring it to life fully, with more depth than I've been able to create.
My pace will change somewhat from the 1st November 2017 as I've decided to take part in my first #nanorhymo event for National Novel Writing Month. The plan is to create a story book for young people about my memories of childhood, the back story if you will, to my planned expedition next year as I explore the coast of Great Britain. So I'll likely be drawing a lot less, but focusing on writing my first novel. Either way I'm looking forward to the process of growing and I'm sure that my reflections will help me to become more confident as a person, and as a colouring book creator and author. I'm going to share my short stories for the novel on this blog each day so please do come back and let me know what you think. I hope to publish my first novel in December on my Amazon page here so keep an eye out for that. And in December I'll begin work on my second adult colouring book - Grasmere Water.
