Parks & Gardens,White Willows, Sirkka Jalava

On my promenade I usually walk passing by this garden, there are big old white willows as a fence . This day the sun was shining and made the lights and shadows play very beautifully.  I had a camera with me and then painted the trees at home with watercolors.

  1. Marvelous painting from your visit to the tree fence and then your personal photo! Good way to do it with that weather you are having there.

  2. Great painting. I cannot handle paper, pencils, paint , wind and glare of outside. I can't even read outside. I do everything from photos.
