Almonds – Ripening
Graphite over Underpainting Drawing
This is another picture that started life in Spain from the wonderful almond trees growing along the roadside up in the Andalucian mountains near the Finca el Cerillo where we stay for our painting holidays. I was just drawn to the textures of the ripening almonds and conceived it as a graphite drawing but then decided to execute it with an underpainting in colour first and the graphite on top.
Also available as a limited edition print.
