The Bee Tree - 2nd View


The Bee Tree - 2nd View
55 cm x 75 cm, conté and pastels on acid-free coloured-ground ‘Canson’ paper.
Date produced: July 2003, while living at North Brighton (1992-2004).

Drawn entirely on-site, on the side of Brighton Road, North Brighton.

I have done another drawing of this same tree, but from a different vantage point. This view offers a really good understanding of some of the lovely twisting in the main forms of this tree.

Like so many drawings of tree forms carried out at the time, I have used an exaggerated understanding of aerial perspective in the colouring to try to enhance the expression of the forms experienced. It is something that does work for me - I can feel the closeness or distance from the colours used.
