For this piece I was responding to a photograph I took from a bush, on one of my daily walks. Each source seems to bring out different approaches to the paint. This source compelled me to use a rougher, more organic brushstroke than previous paintings, it was also interesting to work from a source that didn’t have a strong focal point. I eventually played up the leaf shapes with stripes to create something strong for the branches to dialog with.
