Experiencing the natural world through art
Five more drawings of the Midland Hawthorn. I took all 5 sketches back to the zoo in the final week to make a few adjustments. I started the top two in 2019 and 2017 and the bottom 3 from 2022. I have I tried to capture the essence of this tree since first seeing it in blossom in June 2015. Last chance before the zoo closes as although they will keep the Monkey Temple (dome seen in the background) in the new housing plan this tree will be replaced by a building.
