Wytham Woods tree


Wytham Woods are about four miles outside Oxford and cover an area of 416 hectares. Much of the site is ancient woodland, though there are also areas of more recent natural woodland. It is owned by Oxford University, who use it as a site for ecological research. However, public access is also allowed, and it is a very popular spot for walking. Inspector Morse fans might remember it from The Way Through the Woods. Yesterday, I went out to draw some trees, but could only stay out for a couple of hours as it was much colder than I expected. Here's one study that I did (EDM Challenge #15).

Dave - If it is possible, I think your trees are getting better and better. I love this one. Amazing achievement out in the cold too.

Thanks everyone...you're far too generous. If you really want to see great drawings of trees, check out Diane Wright's site (listed on the right) or Mike Sibley (http://www.sibleyfineart.com/index.htm).
