28cm x 35cm soft pastels on burgundy Canson Tex paper

I love how everything has that wonderful golden glow about it in the afternoons. Based on a photo I took of our flowering gum tree on a “golden afternoon”

I had originally planned on this being quite a simple and quick project. Oh how wrong I was. I swear, this almost drove me crazy! Very pleased to have finally completed it as I really don’t have a lot of patience :)

    This is gorgeous Di!

  • Thanks lynda! Your marvellous gum leaves lured me into a false sense of security thinking that these would be easy lol! I’m well overdue on starting a new painting. (real life just keeps getting in the way) Trying to decide between a kookaburra or a rainforest scene. I’m pretty sure that both will be a challenge …
