So for my second walk in the new parklands (not yet official park, but if there’s a trail, I will walk it), I took along my little sketchbook kit of 1/4 sheets of A4 paper, technical pens, and Inktense watercolour pencil, and a water-brush pen; then I found a spot and sat down. Having a dog along is not always the best combination. Dogs find sketching boring, very boring, and pointless, and hot. Yes, very hot. Let’s roll in the grass, lets stand up and pant, lets go over there (my dog is on leash, which probably really sucks too). I think I would have got more done without her, but it’s nice to have company along.
Obviously, the dog does not want to be sitting around.
