Another example of what the weather can do to trees in the Falklands, this example is based on a photo taken on Carcass Island. Happily this feeble specimen is not typical for trees on Carcass, that island is a real garden spot in our harsh climate.
There's palm trees there even...
....well....cabbage palms anyway.
For once I recorded the stages of this charcoal drawing, usually I'm in too much of a hurry.
Got another two commissions finished last week too. My lips are sealed though, they're both Christmas presents so can't be shown on here yet.
