Bark Painting 01







Bark Painting 01
Alkyd Oil on canvas panel


"One day, whilst traveling interstate, I was flicking through the in-flight magazine in which I read an article about the ubiquitous Eucalypt. Accompanying the article were some marvelous photographs of gum trees as well as some lovely images of colourful bark patterns. This inspired me to create the painting at left which I've simply called
 Bark Painting 01.

This style of painting is a significant departure from my normal style of realism and I would call this more expressionistic. More bark paintings are planned for the future."
