Pastel painting on Black Acid Free Canson Paper using hard chalk pastels and Faber Castell pastel pencils.
The magnificent Daintree Forest is located in tropical far north Queensland, Australia. This world heritage listed forest is over 135 million years old – the oldest in the world and spans 1,200 square kilometres.
It is home to the highest number of plant and animal species that are rare, or threatened with extinction anywhere in the world. It surely is the most diverse and beautiful example of mother nature at its very best.
“I walked alone into no man’s land
and with my eyes witnessed the beauty of nature’s hand.
Green veils of leaves and trees stood tall
Babbling sounds of water and then a bird’s call.
Standing proud surviving all time,
this magnifcent forest forever in its prime!
This is just a very small part of this tranquil and magical forest.
Inspiration for this painting came from my daughter’s photograph called Daintree Bliss which is just one of her many beautiful photos:tracyleephoto"
