Sketch: Those Trees Again

Clump of Trees SketchI used to take the shortcut across the 15 Acres  when walking from Ashtown Gate to Chapelizod Stile (Note to self: must finish picture by painting actual stile). This would take me through Oldtown Wood (not a whole lot more than a clump of trees), and invariably leave me facing an outstretched herd of 300 Fallow Deer.

You could walk on straight through them and they would move of course, but that seemed wrong so I would always backtrack and go around the long way, making the walk home last over two hours.

This sketch is not Oldtown Wood - it's those trees here in Missouri I told you about a couple of weeks ago - when I said I was going to paint them, and you didn't believe me. On this fifth day in a row of blue-sky blandness, you can picture the large sky above them as the blue it was, and I'll settle for pale grey. And everybody's happy.
