Field Trip: England! Part 4: Drawings

drawing a cathedral while riding the train!
Because N. loves to draw daily, we take art supplies with us when we travel.  For our trip to England (Part 1, 2, 3), I refreshed his "drawing bag" with new markers, colored pencils, and sketchbook.  It was interesting to see how the trip showed up in the drawings he made while we travelled.  Of course there were trains, cathedrals, and airplanes...














Do you see the arrow that's just been shot out of the castle? Love it!


This picture of "ruins" was a new type of drawing for N.  He made it after we spent a morning walking the ancient city walls of York.

I'm impressed by the detail!

(Did you go to the Jorvik Viking Centre while you were in York?)

No, we didn't go to the Jorvik Viking Centre, mainly because we were focused on Norman and medieval York... Maybe if we have the opportunity to go to York again someday!

These pictures are so interesting. So much detail and so varying in style. Neither of my older two care anything about art and it makes me sad. :( I always loved to draw. I enjoy seeing N's creations so much.
