The Old Man of Calke


Beautiful tree, with some real presence Sarah.

A lovely pen and wash

What a beautiful old tree, I just love trees and woodlands. You have caught the gnarled look of the bark on the trunk really well.

Thank you Carrie, Heather, Paul and Michael - much appreciated. If you are ever in South Derbyshire/The National Forest Calke is well worth a visit.

Excellent Sarah.

Wow, what a tree!

Lovely painting 🤗

Fantastic old tree Sarah, love it.

Denise, Emma, Faye and Carole - thank you very much!

A super pen and wash Sarah. Fabulous old tree with lots of character, which you have captured in your marks and lines.

Just missed you Fiona - very many thanks!

A quick pen and wash of the ancient known as the Old Man of Calke. It's thought to be over 1000 years old and is a wonderful tree.
