The days are warming up and the sun is shining. Spring is definitely in full flow with the daffodils and the early irises blooming. We had a lovely walk this morning along the river. The plane trees have not started to bud up and still stand majestically proud against the bright blue winter sky. Unfortunately, I had no camera with me but I did wonder how I could capture those tall trees on a canvas.

The painting above is one I painted last year. It is of a cork tree not a plane tree, but maybe I could follow the same format. Do you think this would work for winter trees?

This older photo of a different part of  the rive gives you some idea of how tall the trees are.
