The tree sketch was drawn from the Southerndown Trip last Tuesday.
I had not drawn in a while, so I was interested in sitting down and spending a long time on this tree. I liked this tree because it had dark caves in between the branches. There is mostly, always a tree that stands out in every landscape painting before this sketch, so maybe I was drawn to it because of that.
I left the sketch alone, and wanted to see if I could paint from it.
I thought about installation here and in the future e.g. next year, making stage sets and murals/ which would be the paintings – and other smaller paintings that would be props – like the tree here.
