Walk Two Hundred and Fifty-Six – ‘Beauty is truth, truth beauty’

The truth of the matter is that when I tried to draw the hut in the woods (mentioned in the previous post) this was the best I could manage. The constant rain all day has meant that walking up to the woods was like walking in a river bed (though my feet were dry and warm as toast in my new fur-lined boots) and when I attempted to draw on the increasingly sodden paper I had to abandon each drawing tool in my pencil case until at last some of the marks from the inkpen stuck to the page.
Note to self: How about a bus-shelter series?

It looks very wet and interesting, even if its not what you intended. A bit of rain overnight, garden smelt heavenly this morning.

Those boots seem great, cold feet can be such a misery.

No worries - unexpected colours and sploshes and smudges are all learning points and might even look better than a carefully drawn line.
Once I was drawing a tennis court at a Jesuit retreat house where I was staying (don't ask how - okay it was a crafty three days and the only Jesuit in sight just read a book somewhere) and rain sploshed my drawing. I kept it anyway.
