When I go walking, as I did today and yesterday, weather permitting, and the weather has been very strict this year, I always take along a sketch pad. My sketchpads now stack up to over two feet's worth. The top long view is from this afternoon's walk, and the two trees drawing is from yesterday. I like to call the practice "Walk 'n' Draw". I strongly recommend it. If you think you see something, try to draw it. At this time of the year I use to walk along canals. Now I walk along corn fields. Despite the change, the path is still muddy.
