'Urban Palm tree', watercolour on paper
This is an image of a ripped poster in Sienna, Italy, (which has not been doctored by me in any way to make it look more like a palm tree). I just loved the fact that it reminded me of a palm tree and that it is purely down to luck and of course my observational skills to notice it in the first place.
I happened to be with another artist who looked down the street at the precise moment I first observed this and he announced 'now that's what I like to paint' and I looked at the wall and thought 'no, that's much more interesting to me'.
