E is for...


I have a bit of a soft spot for the Elm- I feel it is a bit of an underdog and am always pleased when I see one. (Dutch Elm Disease info ...)

This is the drawing I did yesterday for the #WoodlandAlphabet, however it is the third Elm study in the sketchbook since March. 

This was the first study- looking at the buds:

Then the next - with the start of the seeds. Photographed with an Elm yesterday which showed just how much it had changed since I'd drawn the branch 2 weeks ago (prompting the new drawing).

Same study, different picture... just because.

In the kitchen there is a cutting that is coming into leaf that I need to get on and draw too!
