Remarkable trees


Done today, for the poster Anne and I are doing for The BIG DRAW, in the Botanic Gardens, in the rain. That’s au plein air, I tell you.

It’s placed too centrally, but we can crop it to fix that. I don’t know if the immensity of the tree is reading though. Maybe it needs some foreground element; just as people put a quarter beside things in photos to show the scale, I could stick in something to provide some scale reference. Like a monkey.

You can’t go wrong with a monkey, as my boss used to say.
