Morgan Esplanade - Tasmania


Acrylic on 9x12 canvas sheet
Available through DPW gallery/auction

This month, the VPO challenge is in Tasmania, and while roaming the countryside I found this tree. Loved how it is backlit by the sun, and the shadow cast about it on the ground, as if it were a skirt flared out. I am fascinated lately, by shadows. The original Google link can be seen here.

I'm sure I will be painting more of Tasmania, the island has quite a bit to offer - a little bit of everything which works for almost everyone.
