The blue coat January 2024

When a slower than usual train journey brings joy to one's heart.

This is a tiny sketch on the train from Waterloo to Bracknell, by which means I would arrive at Staines, and from there would take the rail replacement bus to Windsor. all of which prolonged the journey, but with a sketchbook in hand one hopes a circuitous route will prolong the sketching as well.

As usual in these little sketchbooks, I make line drawings on the spot and add colour at home. I blame Christmas and New Year unwellness in the household for my being so slow to put pink in my fellow passenger's cheeks.
