Walk Three Hundred and Nine – Nashe’s Farm Track

A showery day, so having started the drawing while it was dry, the rain clouds found that open sketchbook too tempting and let rip. But I’m getting quite practiced at rain on my drawings so I abandoned all ideas of adding watercolour. I think I came off quite lightly this time.

very effective - I like to think of you darting here and there to make sure the drips get in the right place :)

"Raindrops keep falling on my head' we used to sing and I remember one time a couple of us sang it at an impromptu concert in Levuka. Nice accidental blotches that add to the picture.

I've greatly enjoyed looking at your sketches. I Googled "walnut ink" and it led me here. I just made my first batch of the ink a couple of days ago, and I've found your blog very inspiring. I need that.
