Beautiful Sunny Day

I have at last come to the end of my crazy, log-jam of school visits and so I've been delighted to have such a sunny weekend to chill out and celebrate! 

Yesterday we spent the day SketchCrawling in Leeds (more later, when I've scanned everything in) and today we travelled across to the hills to the north of Sheffield and walked near the Strines Dam. The sun was glorious all day long. 

It was a pretty lazy kind of walk, with as much sitting around gazing at the views as anything. John did his usual eye-resting and I did lots of very quick sketches in my Inktense watercolour pencils. 

Extra early, warm, sunny days like this feel so special and precious (to us poor Brits anyway), you appreciate them all the more.

Love your sketches of the country side, better than photos as a keepsake I bet.

Hello Lynne
I happened upon your blog by way of Liz Steel and Urban Sketchers.
I do enjoy your sketches....such a delight to see....I love your train people and seeing what you and your sketch crawlers get up to.
I see you've been to Australia....I think it's time you came again!
Anyway, thankyou for spreading such joy
