Amazingly I'm actually on schedule.  Week 11 and tree 11.  And not only that but I have a handful still to scan that will actually put me ahead.

tree eleven

Posted by Peter Bangs on Thursday, June 24, 2010,

Again from Itchen Valley Country Park.  This is an example of a strange habit I've noticed in quite a number of country parks.  One lone tree, in the middle of a field, with 20 or thirty square feet of land fenced off around it.  No idea why, never bothered to inquire.  Just like to think of it as a strange little quirk.

tree ten

This is a dead, lightning struck tree at the very top of Itchen Valley Country Park.  It was scribbled down in about two minutes while walking the dog.

This was the tree that started it all.  A small Cherry near my old work place.

The small white blossom were added with a tipex pen.  The effect does not reproduce well unfortunately.

Tree seven

This one was in the grounds of Winchester Cathedral.  The upper surface of the leaves looked black from a distance and only on closer inspection could it be seen it was the deepest red with tiny flashes of green.

Yet another tree from Riverside Park.  Again I was taken with the architecture of it.

Tree five

Another tree in Riverside Park.  This was drawn on a family dog walk.  It was another tree trying to survive under the canopy of much taller trees, beeches I think, this time by leaning out from under them and stretching it's branches as far as it could.

tree four

This was a very quick sketch of one of the poplars that populate Riverside Park near my daughter's school.  It was done on the school run while trying to keep a close eye on Harry my very fast 18 month old son.

tree three

This one is a Californian Chestnut, tucked away in a dark corner in Exbury Gardens.  I was taken with the zigzag silouette of the tree as it fought for light and water under the canopy of the much larger surrounding specimens

Tree two

This poor, scrawny looking specimen was in a carpark outside Halfords.  I think it's a good few years old but stunted by the car pollution.

tree one

Finally able to scan and upload some stuff.  Tree one is a cherry tree on a small green.  The tree is outside the home of one of Molly's friends and it struck me as a very fine specimen every time we passed it on the school run
