October Cherry Tree, Ganymede, Glencree. Watercolour on paper. 66cm x 63cm, framed. For sale.

This is very much about the process of drawing, not only with pencil, but also with paint. This was true first of all in the preparation spent observing, getting to know and drawing the tree and general area. Then, in the repeated paintings  I made of the tree, through various seasons. In this painting, I’m feeling more of a balance between spontaneity and close observation.
