A new blog and a funeral

Today was wet, we walked about 1/2 a mile to and from the car to the church to day for the funeral of a very modest man who we used to buy sheep from, he was a brilliant sheep breeder. I think they bought their first pony from me too. A huge number of people were ther and it was a lovely celebration of his life.
My sketch is done from memory and is a bit skew wiff as it was raining heavily.
This is my first post to a blog which I hope will record my daily walking and sketching, although I can see that it might be a bit awkward with the amount of rain we keep having.
The little church I must investigate more, I think it is the only one remaining of several that were built about the mid 1800's aroung the farming area. The others are all in ruins.
