Portholes

Chris and I have started swimming. We hadn't been since moving house last summer so it's a new pool for us. Inside, the external walls have a series of staggered, blue-tinted, circular windows high up on the wall. Sort of porthole-inspired I presume.
When I glanced up at them last night one particular window showed a perfect round image. The sky was bright blue from the glass and because it was dusk, the crop of naked branches beyond were silhouetted against the shock of colour. If you know me then you know I love trees, and silhouettes, and specifically silhouettes of trees :)
I immediately wanted to to make some sort of image inspired by it. I have to go do something now which is making me nervous and I find drawing tree silhouettes very relaxing :) so I just quickly made this.
