From my living room window

It is still cold and grey here, and outdoor sketching has been out of question. But my hands were starting to itch, so I sat next to my living room window and started to sketch. The gated area is the Athelstan School car park, which was completely empty being the saturday before Easter. I used a Stabilo point 88 to draw the poles, as I didn't have a flat surface to rest my arm and it would have been difficult to paint straight and fine lines.
I found the winter poplars a bit difficult to draw/paint. I did some online search before painting them, but didn't find much. I just added some additional branches with my pencil after painting them, to make them look a bit better.
