Ancient trees

When holidaying on Aegina Island in Greece earlier this year, we were told about an ancient olive grove in the interior of the island. After several failed attempts, we eventually found the grove and it was worth the effort! Some of the trees are purportedly over 1000 years old. I am fascinated by the forms and the beauty of these trees and am planning to make a series of large scale drawings of them. This is a prep study for the first one. Watch this space, it may take a while!
