Urban sketching?

An English woodland in spring... sunshine dappling through fresh green leaves... nettles pushing up enthusiastically, birds singing, and squirrels running round... Does this count as "urban" sketching?

Possibly not...

...except that this was painted at the end of a pedestrian tunnel under the M23 London to Brighton motorway, and the birdsong was drowned out by the roar of lorries and cars passing overhead...
