The Little Lemon Tree



This is a sketch from Desiree, done several weeks ago now during the tail end of autumn.  It's part of her own garden and amazingly colourful considering the time of year. A real reminder to me as to how mild the Californian climate is compared to that of the UK. Everything looks wonderfully lush. 

I am particularly jealous of her little lemon tree, something we can't grow remotely well here in England.

I have seen photos of Desiree's garden and its stunning. I think her love for her plants clearly spills over into this painting and i am so happy it's now part of my postcard collection.  Thank you Desiree!

Desiree, I so love to be able to jump right into your beautiful watercolour to escape the miserable weather here. Beautifully loose and full of wonderful vibrant colours and fabulous mood.

What a sunny, happy painting, so much how I imagine California to be.

The watercolor look of this is gorgeous! Loving the vibrancy of the colors and the brush strokes. I would love to have a printing company and make this into a huge poster.
