The Paddy

This was an enjoyable piece to do.
A paddy field in early autumn.  I didn't do any measurement or size or scale, just measured by eye. Didn't try to copy exactly either.
Photo ref.  229mm x 152mm mid brown toned Daler & Rowney paper.

Dragon Tree 

The famous "Dragon Pine Tree" of Kesennuma, Japan. This tree was found in the aftermath of the Great East Japan Earthquake of 2011.
It resembled a dragon, and was cut more to reinforce the shape of a dragon. It now a symbol of reconstruction and rejuvenation.
I'll get this framed, sold and give all the money to the Kesennuma charity at an charity event my wife is holding.  28cm x 21cm on toned pastel paper.  Holbein and Sennelier pastels.  Own photo ref.
