Shapes Textures and Colours

I have been meaning for days to walk down the lane and catch the hedgerow's stripe of red flanked by the white of the cow parsley.  Every year I am struck by this stripe of colour caused by the new shoots of the hawthorn and, until today,  I have always left it too late to capture it.  The grey weather means that the red is less defined but there is enough information in the shots and couple of rough sketches that I made for me to work from if I decide to.

I am always struck by the colours, shapes and textures within the landscape; if I get stuck at home because of builders or other domestic issues that have to be seen to, I make collages based on my observations that may be useful later.
