My Flight of the Macrocarpa is an exploration of nature and a celebration of a much-loved Australian Eucalyptus Macrocarpa tree.
Ignoring the vibrant colour of the Eucalyptus Macrocarpa and only portraying my subject in black and white pays homage to historical botanical sketches and the rawness of my botanical subject.
The intricate detail and subtle use of tone and texture heightens the viewing experience as you are drawn in closer to explore each intricate detail and pen stroke.
Careful consideration to spatial relationships and negative space combined with a delicate and subtle use of tone and texture interpret the morphology of my botanical subject and invokes a connection in time with nature.
This pen and ink drawing is on Fabriano Artistico 650GSM paper and is professionally framed in Solid Tasmanian Oak with no Mount.
