Spanish chestnut


Mixed media on paper. This tree is in the abbey grounds at Balmerino overlooking Dundee on the north side of the Tay. It is over 500 years old and its great limbs are propped up whilst its cavities are filled with concrete.

The drawing is for the Dighty conservation group in Dundee . I was along last week helping dig out a silt clogged burn, in waders, again. Brilliant to see everyone, had a laugh and a chat and a bottle of flat irn bru. Cheers.
