Walking the old road

I walked the old road again this morning and this gate caught my eye so I did a pencil sketch. I had my camera with me as there were some lovely shadows across the track which I hope to do something with later, but not quite as sharp as yesterday as there is some cloud around today.
While I was walking mindlessly back I saw a black snake whose photo I took which I will put up on my other blog, but he didnt take very kindly to having his photo taken and flattened his head and neck like a little cobra. I was glad that Jake had not seen him and went past on the other side of the track as he hates snakes and is likely to attack them and at this time when they first coe out they can be very agressive.

Blimey are they poisonous?
Wonderful how the shadows give so much information to the scene

Nice expressive pic.
Hey, it's a good idea you didn't decide to draw the snake! What a life you lead - busy, busy, and what clean air you must have.

Great variety of line direction which gives this pic lots of energy. Bit early for snakes up here yet but the magies are getting very edgy.

Penny, this sketch is perfect - so moody and captivating. Boy, can you frame a scene!
