That's ok Ian--these are an absolute pleasure to view. It's so good to get caught up in the joy of drawing from observartion (and it's occasional frustrations). Sometimes you have to return to more practical art-making to get better or more enthusiastic about experimentation. Excellent work mate!!

thanks, steve - it was a pleasure to sketch, all good practice I suppose.

this olive tree #2 is really stunning! For a minute I thought I saw the drawing from Van Gogh's collection -

oh yeah, the fountain! for some reason the trees were growing from raised concrete circles like this one
