Greetings from Drawing No 9, here in Loweswater. Congratulations on a fine body of work, a real labour of love without doubt.

The photographs show both the skill of artist and the skill of the photographer, with some lovely personal and historical touches. A great achievement -and ideal armchair travelling, evoking so many good memories.

A remarkable piece of work, evidence of the beauty and the essentially unchanging nature of the Lakeland landscape. It also demonstrates the attention to detail that Richard brings to any endeavour. At the moment during this traumatic year of 2020, it provides us with a welcome if tantalising glimpse into the hills.

What a wonderful project. So impressive, and a great pleasure to browse and remember days out on the hills and hopefully plan some more.

Wonderful piece of work – something good to brighten a grim year.

I may be a stranger to the charms of the Lakes, but what a superlative piece of work this is. Richard’s forensic approach, and God only knows how many hours of work, have produced a fascinating and valuable work which deserves the widest audience.

A real labour of love….and a great way to remember some fantastic days out over more than 40 years!

What a resource! Thanks Richard, and thanks for all the great days we’ve had together in these landscapes.
