The espalier apple tree, Old Farmhouse, Sussex – a painting a day

 9″x11″ 22cm x 27cm watercolour on heavyweight rag paper

Today we all went out in the sunshine to visit a new garden in the National Garden Scheme, it was a good move, the garden itself is mostly new so has plenty of room to grow, in the oak timbered barn members of the family and friends played short concerts, there were very good cakes with tea or squash. All in all it was a really different day, the music was delightful, the garden interesting and the whole thing so friendly.

Caspian who has made the garden what it is, and is expanding it, kindly gave me permission to do a drawing there. I got a little bit over ambitious for the time I had ….i.e. the length of my sons’ patience + the time taken to eat cake and then a biscuit. However they found a dog and a cat having a stand-off on the new terrace so that helped give me the time to get this far.

If you want a taste of the garden look at www.musicmindspirit.org

I will post this tonight but I reserve the right to go back to it and rework it, this is my normal working practice but there has not been the time to do it today. I will repost it reworked if that works out.

Update:  I’ve reposted a reworked version now, adding more detail to the tree
