Winter blues

I saw this image when I was walking down a street in London, a cloud behind a bare tree that seemed to draw an outline of the missing foliage. I found it so whimsical that I immediately made a note of it in my sketchbook.

I made several versions of this image some that included animals and people but they always became a distraction and I started losing the point of the drawing. In the end I went for simplicity, the two separate elements that come together by chance and seem to draw a memory of Spring.
