Photographs of trees, lakes and ink drawings of tree silhouettes are the subject of the “By the Tree” and “By the Lake” set of artworks. “By the Tree 01″ is a mixed media print created from photography, watercolour mark making and digital painting. “By the Tree 22″ uses a combination of ink painting, rice paper and handmade paper to compose a minimalist, geometric design with a tree silhouette. “By the Tree 15″ marries contemporary with an Oriental twist, the electric blue pine tree against a bronze, floral patterned background gives it an extra colour pop. “By the Lake 03″ is a pastel and charcoal drawing over a photograph of a traditional lake scene.
