Sketchbook - Day Out

I took my two little monkeys out of the house early this morning. We usually go to the park but decided to walk down to the next village for cake and lemonade. On the way we have to cross a river and were surprised to see it absolutely smothered in nasty old duck weed that wasn't there the other day. It was an amazing sight though, like something out of the Twilight Zone!

Look how well behaved they are when promised cake!

They even let me do a quick sketch of the next table which was under an apple tree. I can see mistakes everywhere but I have to ignore the voice in my head and tell myself well done for not giving in and re-drawing it back home from the photo I took!! I've also got an idea for Illustration Friday which will be done from a photo taken at the same time but I am going to try and keep it in this loose style, so watch this space!
