Because there was no sketch yesterday I'm giving you a double dose today! In fact this was the first fine day for quite some time here on Mersea Island so I was afforded the luxury of a bit of sketching in the fresh air. I took myself off in the direction of the seawall in what became apparent were totally inappropriate shoes. The footpaths have been reduced to a quagmire with the recent rains and the tartist had driven off with my walking boots in the car, so I squished my way through the mud towards the Strood where a large flock of Brent Geese were gathered on the field just behind the seawall. Their constant cackling was a welcome bit of background accompaniment to my drawing.
