This is at the top of the track down to Fossil Cove. It was high summer so the track was hot, dry and dusty.
I'm not sure if our funny trees will make much sense to folks who are unfamiliar with them. They are gracile, with patches of bright colour on their bark, but they have an untidy growth habit. Just about everything in the scene, apart from some patches of bark, was some shade of grey. But that's what dry eucalypt forests are like. Colour mixing was difficult. With all those greys it was hard to get the values and chroma right.
This photo was taken at night under less than ideal lighting. I've tried (in Affinity Photo) to get rid of the glare at the top and down the sides from my studio lights but without much success. It will look better when I take a photo in daylight tomorrow.
There are still a few details to adjust but, anyway, I got the canvas covered tonight and was hoping for some feedback. I was rushing to finish it and post it because I'm having another stint in hospital from Monday and will be out of action for a while.
Thanks for looking and commenting.
