A long walk today, better weather, and look at this lovely house I spotted as I came out of the woods at Coleman Green.

Hey Julie,
I'm putting togther a presentation on blogging for work. I was going back and reviewing my early posts and saw that you were one of the first people post on my blog. I wanted to thank you for that, and I also wanted to say what a great idea this blog of yours is. Including maps with each post is brilliant. I hope you don't mind if include your blog in my presentation.

I'm amazed at the variety of trees you've managed to convey - especially love the red one on the left - and wonderful clouds. I'd like to see your house sometime, even if it doesn't measure up to this one.

Hi Jen thank you so much.

Chuck I'd be honoured, so glad to see that you've been able to post more of your lovely stuff after that long hiatus.

Alison the copper beech or whatever it is attracted me as much as the house - makes a welcome contrast to the green. My house - hmmm, well it's a fairly ordinary house (typical 3 bed 1930s house), but I suppose I should do it at some point.

Great Julie - you've really captured those fresh summer colours. Isn't it nice when it doesn't rain!

Katherine, it was a lovely sunny interlude. I plopped down on the field and took my time over this one and Rufus was happy to sprawl in the sun.
Lindsay, glad you like it, thanks.
Hashi yes it is all water colour with a few initial pencil strokes to work out the structure of the building.

Amazing that you're calling this one a sketch Julie! This artwork must be on 9x12" at least for all the detail. Just lovely.
