Eucalyptus sp. (Eucalyptus bark and leaves)
Watercolour & graphite on paper 2011
Eucalyptus leaves and bark are the source of endless fascination for those people who paint or who take photographs. The shapes and colours are endlessly varied and always satisfying. This piece of bark and leaves come from a tree on my property. Trying to portray them individually did not work, however they married well and placing the bark and leaves together and mixing watercolour and graphite resulted in a very pleasing composition.
