The Old Orchard, Cranborne Manor
The Old Orchard, Cranborne Manor

Watercolour Sketch
A couple of Summers ago I visited the gardens at Cranborne Manor, Dorset and this gorgeous tree was in the grounds. The light was stunning and - because I was shooting into the sun to get this image - there were light spots scattered across the tree tops. Although it’s not normally something we would see by eye, I thought it might make an interesting image to try to capture in paint.
