This large art piece is inspired by the Australian Gum tree and the peace and calm trees provide. Charcoal was used to create a realistic looking tree with strong contrasting bark and dark shadows. A mix of 8 acrylics were used to express a sense of life and motion. Heavy layering of paint splattering was used to provide depth and a sense of light.
This artwork is ready to hang straight out of the box. The canvas has white sides and creates a strong shadow with the 4cm (1.5") thick edging- making it suitable for dark and light wall shades. All art is sealed with high quality charcoal and acrylic fixatives and includes a signed certificate of authenticity.
