I got around to taking a photo this morning of my painting completed on Wednesday when I drove to Sissinghurst Castle to paint a view beside their lake. I saw the wonderful old oak tree beside the water with the sun hitting the dry reeds behind and it immediately captured me.
I find trees without leaves so beautiful and I really enjoyed studying it and trying to capture the amazing colours and twists and turns of the bark and branches.
