Artist's Description

Soft Pastels on thick white cartridge paper, 297mm x 410mm

A beautiful thing happens to some types of eucalyptus trees in Australia during summer, The trees start to change colour, look a bit shabby, then they start to shed their bark, revealing a brand new ‘skin’, cool to the touch and almost sensual in its’ smooth texture and soft pastel colours.

I drew this from a reference picture I took myself, in my own backyard in Adelaide, South Australia. The colours were not digitally enhanced for cosmetic value, it was not necessary for nature provides beauty that can not be improved!

Completed 30th August, 2010
