Edyth's Hornbeam Oils on board 9 x 13 inches SOLD
Shapes and colours in the copse. The Hornbeam in autumn.
32 years ago a friend gave me a small Hornbeam sapling for our wild garden.
I remember when it was struggling to grow and not get eaten by the rabbits.
Now, this sapling is around 30 feet high...wide and bushy. A match for any rabbit.
This sketch study is a reminder of the early days surrounded by new friends.
Thank you Edyth...your sapling is doing well.
