Day 22 of the 31 day challenge for January.

There is a place I often drive by in the hinterland near where I live.

There is a momentary glimpse through the trees. A view across a valley of rolling hills. It’s perfectly framed by a wise old tree. The tree of wisdom I have named it. It watches over the valley with a knowing eye.

How many times have I wished I could stop and paint it? Perhaps only the tree of wisdom knows.

This study is an attempt, an experiment, in capturing the chaos contained within the natural order of the bush.

My goal is to try out new ideas and different compositions. Experiment, play and have fun. By painting daily of course it will improve my skills as well.

I will sell most of these sketches on Ebay for no reserve auctions. Some will be used as ideas for larger works, and some may become episodes of Learn To Paint TV.
