Under the Sunlit Canopy


Under the Sunlit Canopy
53 cm x 37 cm, pastels and charcoal on coloured-ground acid-free ‘Canson’ paper.
Date produced: April 2006, while living at North Adelaide (2005-2006).

With this piece, I was after an accurate colour study of the tree, from in under the tree’s sunlit canopy in the morning.

I purposely chose a view with a wide dynamic range of tones. I wanted to capture an accurate sense of the colours seen within the dark shaded areas, and the light sunlit areas. I also wanted to capture the characteristic warm orangey greens seen through sun-backed foliage.
