Contemplating My Own Mortality

A couple of sketchbook pages. Went running around Thornes Park on Tuesday. I usually treat my 40 minute run as a reccy for something interesting to draw in the park, spied this bulbous tentacled tree and returned after my exercise to draw it. Definitely a feeling of an Elder God from this tree.

Wednesday I had a meeting with a client not that far away in Walton and on the way home took a detour to Walton Colliery Nature Park. A cold day but it was really peaceful by the waterside. I planned on colouring this sketch in the evening but the news of Mark E. Smith passing away kinda took the wind out of my sails. I wasn't a huge Fall fan but he obviously had an effect on me, as I spent the evening listening to their music on 6Music contemplating my own mortality.
