Today’s Shoot it, Sketch it was inspired by the photograph in last Friday’s post. The moment I saw this magnificent tree, I knew I was going to paint it. I like the image for many reasons. I like the way the gate is part of the landscape and not part of it. I like the wild branches and the wavy clouds. And I love that shock of orange in the background.

It’s now for sale in my Etsy shop : )
