Our Small Gum Tree in the Wind


Our Small Gum Tree in the Wind
34 cm x 55 cm, conté and pastels on acid-free coloured-ground ‘Canson’ paper.

I’ve tried to express the movement and colour of our small gum moving in a westerly wind (from the right), by using some abstraction based on the interplay of shapes, lines and colours. The final image was developed through a series of drawings, but I also worked on the final image outside directly from the subject. This was done to check that the colours, shapes and textures all felt like they were conveying the subject properly.
