Work in progress....
charcoal sketch with modelling paste
First coats of paint
A growing tree
mountains appear in the background
and I decide there will be leaves
working on the trunk was a long process
it changed shape and colour many times
Very bad photo of the finished work,
I'll try and take a better one later
Acrylic on canvas
roughly 100 x 100 cm

Funny thing about painting trees they take on a life of their own,
this started out as a branch reaching into the painting, it grew into a spooky tree with bare branches and has finally found itself with softly flowing moonlit leaves.
I've put in the Southern Cross and still want to add a few little details, should be finished and for sale in a few days.

I've loved painting this and just can't seem to stop,
everyone who walks through my studio loves it.
The tree just keeps on growing, I've tentatively started adding leaves and I'm pretty sure the southern cross is going to appear in the sky soon .

I was in the studio until late last night working on this,
you can see the shiny still wet paint.
Hopefully I'll be finished today and can start on my next night sky painting soon.
I'd love to paint a night sky vista on a HUGE canvas!!
Painting the moon was a lot of fun
