The Perfect Apple – a painting a day

Last night we had a power cut right in the middle of a box shifting fit. I found myself in a maze of unfamiliar objects with no lights.

Blog went out of the window and sons and DIY Dad, robbed of electicity dependant activity, went to our bed and  were read Tolkein aloud by candlelight. I decided to continue with my bonfire in the dark on my own, it sort of worked for a while.

Anyway I did this quick sketch of a perfect Ellison’s Orange from high up on the tree, no sorry I was not high up on the tree, the apple came from there. It’s done with a charcoal pencil and wash

How Autumnal is this?

And finally the Cobea Scandens decided to flower.
