A drawing from my fall vacation in France, 2013


Lately, I've been too busy to blog ... alas, other work piles up sometimes. But, here is a drawing I did, earlier this month, while on vacation in Château-Chervix, France. 

Me :o) drawing the cider apple tree at the rental house in France.

Despite how the picture above appears, it was actually quite windy (and cold) while I was desperately trying to quickly draw the tree.

The drawing was finished outside but painted inside, looking out the front window of the house ... cause it was too cold to stand out there for any longer!

I've drawn and/or painted this view of the cider apple tree a few times before. The tree is very, very old and I just love looking at it, drawing it and observing how this tree changes every time we return to Château-Chervix. :o)



tot ziens,
Judy
