Walk Eight – The village



This is another ‘Friday’ post as Xavier was with me. We headed for a different playground. However he dropped asleep just before we arrived so I took advantage of that and sat to draw on a bench the opposite side of the pond with the village in the distance. I’m not happy with this drawing, the proportions are all wrong – the church looks far closer than it was in reality. However I usually console myself about poor drawings that it is precisely the differences between drawings and reality that give drawings their charm.

And Julie, we will never know if your drawing matches the reality. We just get to enjoy it as it is!

You have inspired me though it might be a daily three block walk-but there really is plenty in our surroundings. Will let you know if I commit. Thanks for sharing, Tricia

Were I to try and draw this, it would be a mess.
