Garden

I haven't drawn a decent sketch in weeks, too much occupied with work and garden. As Spiderman would say: with a big garden comes big responsibilities. We have something like 800m2 of garden, that's a lot for Dutch standards. And a lot of work too.
After I finished pulling weeds today, I made this drawing of our walnut tree, which stands in the middle of the backlawn in between the 2 gardensheds.
Al een tijdje geen tekeningen meergemaakt, te druk met werk en tuin. De hele hemelvaartvakantie onkruid geruimd, genoeg te doen. Dit is een schets van de walnotenboom in onze achtertuin.

Mooie, Rene. Looks like a peaceful space in the town.

wow, you can easily call it a farmland!! (speaking in Dutch standards :) )
But you are absolutely right : if you do not like to have jungle in your backyard than you have to invest some time for weeding your garden !

wat leuk om te zien. En een originele afmeting.

When I feel my back, a jungle sounds like a good idea.
De afmeting had ik gezien in een tekening van Shari Blaukopf. Wilde ik ook proberen. Alleen haar schets was uiteindelijk veel beter. Nog wat mee experimenteren dus.
