How do I draw a map?

I’m playing with different ideas. I held two pens together to try and get parallel lines, and I wanted to do something modern, a bit like graffiti for this. The writing says ‘walk this way to get to the treasure trove don’t get bitten on the way through the winding maze.’

There is a gaping mouth and a big staring eye. Big clawed feet and huge ears. The animals body is covered in flowers….fun..

Stone in a corner

In the corner by the porch of a church. I wondered why? The colours caught my eye as we walked past yesterday.

Perhaps it was a child leaving it to remember a lost pet? Or just a painted stone left to brighten a dark corner.

It made me think of ancient and modern. How long will the stone remain unblemished, unfaded. Is it varnished? The paint will flake as the cold invades it. Moisture then ice will affect it. But at least it will remain for a while….
