Out sketching with my little lad again and as last time we are in the woods, sketching trees. This time on Woodbury Common. This is my sketch, we didn’t have too long, so I tried to capture an impression of the light and shadows across the clearing, with the light tree trunks showing stark against the background. It’s still quite wintery so there are not, as yet, many green tones.
It is interesting to compare this sketch with the last sketch, which has a dark and forbidding atmosphere. With the viewer within the dark tree trunks and this one which seems light and airy.
Watercolour on normal cartridge paper – A5 pad.
