Leaf of the Day: Lincolnshire Sketches

In between gardening and having my second dentist's visit I have been able to do a few sketches.
These three are of the village, one the huge horse chestnut tree by the village hall, an evening sky against the white may hedges and a clump of hedge with may and cow parsley.
It's the prettiest time of the year... These are done on a small Kilimanjaro watercolour paper sketch book . Its the first time I have tried it and its a nice landscape 10"x 5" with 140 lb paper. Very good for small sketches.
