Going for a walk

I am doing very little drawing, the beginning if this summer is so depressingly cold and bleak and I was so looking forward to going out to sketch after this long winter. Yesterday was the first day that felt remotely summery, and what did we do? We walked along the railway tracks up to the steel works. It isn’t very far, still, none of us has ever walked that way before.

This cute hotdog graffiti reminds me of one of the most charming Swedish comics, about Assar the hotdog, who runs away from a hotdog stand and starts on a journey through Sweden.

  1. Lovely walk 🙂 I like urban and industrial landscapes as well as trees and lakes. I’m sure I’d love seascapes just as well, but I’m not gettin’ a chance to explore that right now 😉

    1. Yes, every landscape has its charms, doesn’t it? Still people get very confused when you say you’re going to, say Birmingham or Milton Keynes… Just wish I had done a sketch yesterday, because today it has been pouring down.
