Wild Cherry Tree, Autumn

Wild Cherry Tree, Autumn

Wild Cherry Tree, Autumn. Black ink and coloured pastel on grey paper. 21cm x 30 cms approx, 2015

I made this drawing from direct observation in Autumn 2015. At this time of year the leaves on our cherry tree change from green to golden orange. In the afternoons the Prorel mountain turns a deep blue as the north facing slope is swathed in shadow, providing a stunning colour contrast.

It was a very spontaneous drawing and I kept the details simple. My husband, Rick, fell in love with the picture straightaway so I framed it and hung it in our bedroom!
