I am back from my brief and rather dangerous trip up to the Lake District with my dad and brother. Here they can be seen relaxing between walks at the Helvellyn youth hostel. I had envisioned myself sitting atop a mountain or by a lake, drawing some nice landscapes and wildlife, but the weather was fairly brutal (for England) so I had to content myself with indoor picture making. Nothing like a few days of being beaten by the wind and rain while trying to edge along mossy crags to freshen up a little.

Been sunning ¬†myself in the Lakes oop Narth. You should go there too, it’s the bee’s knees. Here’s some drawings from the sketchbook I took with me. Didn’t do as much drawing as I’d planned because I was wrecked by the end of each day. Walking and navigating those hills is hard, especially in the summer.
