Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown’s tree with sheep, summer 2021. Tester pot acrylic and pencil on 1960’s art paper. Around A3. Probably an old imperial size.
Chatsworth is a nice place to spend a few hours, lounging in the grounds, trying not to sit in sheep poo. I had a bit of time, so decided which of the surrounding trees look the most magnificent and proceeded to record it on paper. It has the effect of the strong sunlight and the scale is imposing, once the sheep are seen.
