Went to Isabella Plantation with my sin-laws yesterday and tried to capture a tree that had caught my eye on my previous visit. It’s come out ok, but I think I’d like to have another shot at it when I’m not in company!
Went for a walk in Isabella Plantation on Thursday evening with Matt. It was lovely, so peaceful. There are a lot of deer in Richmond Park, but we were very lucky to see one so close up – it was grazing not far from the entrance to the Plantation and we ended up creeping closer and closer until we were only a couple of metres away. These sketches were done from photos when I got home.
On Thursday (30th April) I went to Isabella Plantation, Richmond Park, for the first time on the recommendation of a client. It was absolutely beautiful. The rhododendrons and azaleas were in full bloom, and it was a vibrant mass of colour.
On Friday (1st May) I went back, taking my father with me as he needed a day out and I thought he’d love it – he did. I didn’t have as much time to sit and sketch, so the one I did of the Still Pool that day wasn’t as good as the one of the stream from Thursday, but I think it’s ok, albeit a little bit Monet (looks better the further away you get from the page!)
