I've had a bit of a cold these past couple of days. The fact that I had to make a 15 minute presentation at college didn't improve my stuffed-up mood, but I've had a bit of a rest since then, and so today decided to take a break from work and just paint an orange tree in watercolour ... good therapy.
The tree was one in the courtyard of a lovely villa in Spain where we stayed for a few days ... I love citrus trees, had a few of them growing in my garden in Australia, and loved picking the oranges and lemons when they ripened, full of warmth from the sun. I'm not really crazy about the end result but it did what it was meant to do and I'm feeling a lot better. Cheers.
