A tree with a shadow

A picture I painted first in watercolour then I went over in coloured pencil, a method I am still experimenting with. I love coloured pencils but it takes so long to complete a picture that I needed to find some way of speeding the process up. I concentrated so much on the tree the background got a bit wonky, but it was a good learning experience. I will be doing lots more using the same combination.

In most of the villages there are trees like this along the road. This one has taken on a funny shape as it is constantly blown one way by the sea wind from the right.
