Pine trees

These are two water colour sketches of pine trees in Aylestone Hall gardens. I’ve tried to do this in Cézanne’s style, using small planes of colour and not painting wet in wet, but letting each coat dry.

Also this week I did a watercolour copied from a photo in the paper. It was of a bombed street in  Homs in Syria.
