Amongst the Olive Trees

Really like this one. Slightly different to your usual work. Excellent as usual.

Has an Easter feel to it Barry

Thanks Lewis, in my ink and wash work I do tend to draw a lot more detail and use ink for dark areas which gives very different results to my watercolours. Yes Brian definitely in the right area set in the Middle East and with it being Easter it has to fit.

It’s very good indeed Barry the pen and wash compliment each other perfectly
