Backlit Triptych
Charismatic gum trees shot on this morning's "keep fit" walk.
Wished I'd had the E3, missed a UFO in the form of a bird
that I've been wanting to add to my collection for a tme.

Gosh you painted them quick :D
Nice shots Mark, joking apart they do have a nice painterly feel to them.

Thank you Phill. it was such a bright sunny morning, our temps still in the 30C range, if I don't get my exercise I'll get un-fitter!
The river gums have been daubed by the old master painter that lives in the sky. eh!

Pando - the bark of the tree is how some of your painrings appear - the ones I commented on a few weeks back regarding large pixels.

Large pixels or dust bunnies, Derek! Yes, and thanks, gum tree trunks make good subjects for painting and photography, unfortunately they are done to death so I try not to include too many of them in my artworks.

but you have included the gum tree theme in your Rock Pool picture and your sea picture a few weeks ago (Edith Falls and Rhythm of the Waves)

They do have the feel of your brushwork Mark. Nice choice of subject and the three of them sit very well together.

Question is, do you paint the way you take photos, or take photos the way you paint :p
Lovely shots :)

That's a very good question, they're different mediums, iso. :D
To some degree I compose paintings like I compose photos.
I don't try to make photos look like paintings and I don't try to make paintings look like photos.
If you want a serious answer to your question then go to my blog on it.

That's drawing a long bow, Derek :)

Thanks OM, my brush strokes can only imitate the trunk of a gum tree but the gum tree wins every time.

Lovely triptych Mark. Subjects for the next painting?Next painting is on the easel but you'll have to wait Amanda. :)

That gum bark is quite something. It reminds me slightly of your own painting style Mark.

Where do you think the gum trees took their bark patterns from, Andrew? :cool:

So that's what you do with your time - you are an official Gum Tree Painter, or is it Painter of Gum Trees. Cunning Aussie Government trick to make them all look the same - you must make a fortune*chr
