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 trees 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.
