Last week I exhibited at the very successful North Downs Botanical Artists exhibition of which I am a member. The venue was at the Old Chapel at St Johns School in Leatherhead and it was a beautiful venue. We had lots of visitors who were very complimentary about the paintings and the venue.
I sold the paintings and the graphite study of the teasel shown below which I was delighted about.

Bhutan Pine

An image of a Bhutan pine cone drawn in graphite. The Bhutan Pine is native to the Himalayas. It was introduced to Europe in the 1830s and is found in parks and large gardens. I picked this cone up on a walk in France several years ago. It was a challenge to draw but I am pleased with the result. A candidate for next year’s SBA exhibition.
