When you wake up with a political cartoon in your head the only thing to do is draw it and move on:
Let’s not vote for this.
(I’m beginning to think I should rename this blog ‘angry artist’)

Last week I went to Castlerigg Stone Circle to have a go at drawing the stones and the landscape – I don’t attempt landscape much as it always seems too big for the page and there are so many people much better at it. But it was a nice day so …
It took twice as long as normal to get there, because of road works on the A66 and some ink had escaped and I had to chase a piece of paper which blew off the drawing board – so by the time I started drawing I felt a bit like Mr Bean. This is another reason why I don’t do much landscape drawing.
There were quite a few people wandering about, but I left them out.
Then yesterday I had another go at the sheep skull – intending to do something more unidentifiable with a closeup and adding colour, I ended up with this. So much for intentions.
