magic greenwich

If you've been following my blog, you'll remember I was doing daily landscape sketches, mostly of the marvellous trees in Greenwich Park. I got bogged down in deadlines and stopped doing it. But yesterday I got into such a panic, feeling overwhelmed with all the things I had to do, that I could feel it was getting unhealthy, and I realised I needed to stop, go back to the park, and hang out with my old tree friends.

The drawing was quite hard-going, it felt a bit like playing the piano, when I haven't practiced for ages. I wasn't entirely happy with the way it came out, but I was VERY happy I'd gone and done it. A lot of passers-by smiled at me, and it reminded me how proud people are of our park, and how much they like to see someone taking time to look at it.
