This was a quick sketch done with a flipchart marker because I'd not picked up one of my usual drawing pens.  It was done while waiting for my daughter to get out of school.

tree twenty

This was an attractive tree in what was the playground of Kings Infants School in West End.  The building now belongs to West End Community Church, a small but growing church with what seems to be an unusual approach from what I've seen so far.  One that definitely works though.

tree nineteen

This was done in about 30 seconds, in the rain.  I was just struck by the strength of the diagonals as the listing trunk broke into four branchesthat barely parted.  I will go back and check what sort of tree it was and maybe make a better sketch.

I was trying to capture the scruffy unattractiveness of the urban garden fir tree.  I think I succeeded.
For some reason that escapes me these drab, ugly, triangular firs became a popular addition to many gardens some 30 years ago.  Little mini firs no doubt looked cute but as they grew, with little of the character most varieties of tree have these garden firs became, in my opinion, a blight on the landscape. 

Do not make the mistake of thinking I am against fir trees, The Royal Victoria Cout...

tree seventeen

This tree wasat the lovely Staunton House in their ornamental farm.  This fallen tree was the main entertainment for a variety of goats, sheep and chickens in one of the main pens.  Drawn rapidly and rather messily in pencil I find it's lacking the presence of some of the inhabitants.

tree fourteen

Another partial tree done at the same time as last weeks.  I love the ivy growing up the base of the trunk.

tree thirteen

Not a whole tree but a chunk (trunk?) of a tree.  This was drawn while waiting for my lovely family to come out of church.  I found a little footpath running through a rather dense small woodland next to the Church.

Tree twelve (or suddenly I'm 6 weeks behind)

Posted by Peter Bangs on Thursday, September 16, 2010,


Week twelves tree was drawn so long ago now that I don't remember where it was or what drew me to it.  My wife's necessary monopolisation of the PC and scanner for her studies, MSc in Ergonomics, meant updating was difficult and I'm not that good at making written notes.
