Day 110
I walked earlier in the day but didn't do a drawing so once again I set off in my pyjamas and coat, this time with a personal challenge to walk around the same small block repeatedly until I saw something to draw, just to prove that there's always something anywhere. And so there is, in fact I found half a dozen ideas with only one circuit necessary. This swing spoke to me of the stillness and quiet of the night - though I could hear a party of teenagers larking in the distance. 4 km

Of course you're right, there always is something. It's just us - we're not in the mood to draw this or that or we don't have what we think is the right media, or we think that whatever is there is too much of a challenge. When we're very old and decrepit we'll have to do the ten yards from home challenge!

It's great when a picture suggests a story. An empty swing certainly raises questions of who, where, why.
Your current minimalist approach is lovely. They will look good together sometime, the way John Wolsey pastes his pictures to make up a large panel.

I love your evening drawings. They're so evocative and I enjoy trying to picture what your neighborhood looks like...but piecing it together from your drawings leaves lots of questions for me on the other side of the world. I like the way you've got a little light in the picture for a full range of values, even in the dark.
