Walk One Hundred and Thirty-Two – the Lych Gate

lychgate
After all the excitement of seeing something new everyday, it was a little difficult to go back to the familiar. When you’ve been on a really good holiday, every moment has been experienced to the full and it feels like you’ve been absent for so long, that you almost expect everything at home to be different, but I walked around the church and then up to the bluebell wood and very little had changed, the fields were more muted colours and there were more berries on the bushes but it was still much the same.

I wasnt going to comment on this one, but your own comment on how being home didnt seem the same is very relevant, but this little sketch is lovely. Sometimes i think I would like to live in a town to be able to sketch the variety, but perhaps it is that the other side of the fence is greener.

Penny, although I much prefer to walk in the countryside, I think that it is difficult to make drawings of landscapes and nature as interesting as drawings of manmade objects, architecture etc. Maybe because God has done such a good job in the first place!

Good point , Julie. However, you have done some stunning landscape scenes. I do enjoy the man made things you share, too.
