Graphite on paper 16.5 x 15cm
This tree is ablaze of colour in my garden – the greens, golds and reds are wonderful and inspired me to include colour in my graphite drawing.

I took the photo of this huge old felled tree in the New Forest last summer and filed it away for that rainy day sketch. Due to the typlical bank holiday weather I’ve spent the Easter weekend working on it .
The initial photo was much larger, I cropped it to include the more interesting area to draw.

I recently came across this drawing while having a good clear out.
I did it a few months ago from one of Carole Kirk’s photographs (with her permision, naturally!).
I used to do a lot of drawings, but since starting my course I seem to do very little, which is a
shame as it’s one of my favourite mediums.
