    Ghost Gums

    I came across some watercolours suggested as useful for Australian scenes so I sampled them and used them here. I also used lots of textures, both as overlays and as canvas layers. Coincidentally, Caesar suggested I try using textures when he commented on another piece and I had just finished this one.

    Several photo references were used for ideas.

    Oh God of homeless things, look down
    And try to ease the way
    Of all the little weary paws
    That walk the world
    today.

    From the title I actually expected to see some ol' toothless specter hollerin' after some kids stepping all over their petunias. "Yew young whippersnappers, get off'n my lawn or I'll give yew vagrants such a fright!. . . Now skeedaddle!"

    Turns out this is more some of the new models of kookaburra perches.

    Really nice painting. Love the way you work the pigment. There's a graphic quality to this one that I like. Feels very earthy. The colors work nicely with the shapes and subject. Really nice variety of marks and so forth as well. Good one!
