I took this photo on a long afternoon walk in Watermillock in the Lake District a few weeks ago. It started off as a sunny afternoon, but by the time I came across this tree, it had clouded over and become quite dull. However it struck me that the colours were so warm and bright that, even on a dull afternoon, it seemed to almost possess its own light.
I have had a few requests from members to do another street/city scene, so bearing this in mind I printed out this picture I took of a busy day in Martinique, in the Caribbean when we were there on holiday last November.
A busy street scene like this is a bit out of my comfort zone, so I took a small section of the scene that contained figures and building structures, drew it out and did a bit of experimenting.
