The cork oak clings on…more adventures with my ink pot


This cork oak tree is valiantly clinging onto a collapsing bank, it is actually tilting at quite an angle and I will add some photos to show you. The cork bark has been harvested off the main trunk but not the branches, which is why they look thicker. This tree is up a steep hill over the river to the south of Jimena. I am enjoying working with my ink pot and brushes! I love the drama and simplicity of black and white with shades of grey.

I am currently in England with my parents so WiFi is limited to my Dad’s wind up machine πŸ˜‰ so please forgive me if I don’t get to answer any comments quickly. I’ll catch up with you all very soon. Wendy x

  1. It’s a great portrayl, Wendy. Was able to even more appreciate it with the pics of the actual tree. Totally understand travel challenges in communicating. Experiencing that right now. On the road with a tablet and it’s just not a laptop ! πŸ˜‰

    • Thank you, Sheldon! I have found now I am older I am less critical of myself, and this helps. Doesn’t mean I don’t know I can’t improve! I used to rip my stuff up all the time in frustration when I was younger…. πŸ™‚
