'Tree Dancer'

Bright summer day down Pink Hill lane; leaves shimmers in the breeze and an Armaleggan Morris dancer waits to start the dance. Silence for now. Then music will start and all moves to reform to another 'now'.

This is the drawing/painting I am offering to be juried for the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition. My ambitions for it are to be accepted and then to sell it. Then the day dream ambition of winning one of the awards. My family's critique was that it was very "green".

This is superb Lorna, I love the atmosphere, you’ve really captured the calm and warmth of the moment. Don’t worry about the trees, there’s no broccoli in there :)

I was thinking of shoals of fish or rooks returning to a roost where there is a single entity that shifts, becomes many individuals and then reforms to become a single entity again. Same but different which is why I chose small marks making for this drawing.
