Drawing Trees

I decided that I needed time to myself away from the hustle and bustle of A level revision and business, so I booked myself onto a workshop to draw trees for a day - up near Acle in Norfolk. I had no idea what to expect, so just decided to enjoy, whatever. It wasn't such a brilliant day in terms of weather, but we managed to get outside for a walk alongside some beautiful trees - mostly ash, and mostly magnificent - and we sat and sketched for a while. Then the rain came and we went back indoors. Lunch was followed by some painting - poster paints, big brushes. Painting like I hadn't done for years, if ever really - very free and the results are not astounding, but it was such fun just pushing colour around the page - well, actually quite a few pages because I do have a tendency to work quickly. And now it's back to the grindstone, because I don't think this is material for my greeting cards! But I do think I want to add more colour, so watch this space....
