Avebury is a local ancient stone circle , it has a number of burial mounds and clumps of trees scattered all around it, four beach trees stand in one place, and people leave ribbons and things. I have stopped with my sketch book many times enjoying the shelter of these trees, so I thought I would have a go at painting them. Trees are not as simple as you think to paint , I have a new respect for artist that have mastered the tree.
After spending so much time last year drawing, this year I am hoping to paint more, with plenty of opportunities in the current situation I have started some basic paintings.
I hope to improve my approach and use of colour, I am using canvas sheets from a pad and water based oils.
Stay safe and paint more.
