Definitely enjoying!
I used to love Constable's oil sketches and studies in the Tate and V&A when I used to live and work in London...
Great stuff!

Thank you for sharing the different artist's view of painting trees Deborah. I really love the Constable study of trees it is incredible to think how old that drawing must be yet it still retains it's freshness.

Those drawings are great! I recognize a few old favorites I discovered way back when I was in grad school. I know you're a serious devotee of drawing!
