I love drawing trees, it's a real way of discovery and my love for graphite really makes me enjoy it even more!

I have always admired these trees when walking to my studio from Fulham Broadway, just between Fulham Road and Kings Road.

You've captured the gnarled quality of these trees very well. I also really love your sketch style. I have just started a Sketch A Day series for myself where I sketch something new each day. I'm really enjoying just sketching for the sake of sketching. :)

Dear adebanji. I just came across your blog and I automatically fell in love with your sketches. I really like these olive trees, you've captured the essence of them so well. Congratulations.
