I took three photographs on 15th November 2021. Two photos of the James I IV Oak, and one overhead shot of a beautiful wild mushroom growing in the meadow amongst the green grass.
At 1247hrs of that day the photographic composition for the original sketch you see immediately above was produced. This is my favourite of the two Oak photographs for that Autumn day.
“The Oaken King, verily standing, arrayed in Autumnal finery, imposing amidst the treeline, magnificent, powerfully watchful.”
The “James I IV Oak – Autumn Landscape” took me within forty-seven minutes from start to finish.
Here is the original photographic composition inspiration for my sketch:
Upon completing my sketchy style drawing, I was quite surprised at how the minutes had speedily flown by. I used a stopwatch to note the time elapsed for this artworking. 47th minute for the photograph, 47 minutes to finish the sketch.
Quaint, for an Oak tree that has lived since 1612.
