This image is part of a series exploring trees and their interaction with the local landscape in Sussex, England. Some of these works are more literal interpretations which seek to evoke and enhance the atmosphere of the scenes I am seeing, while others are more conceptual and graphic in their approach. The pictures begin as photographs which are then digitally manipulated and merged with other photographs, paintings, drawings, textures, and found objects to create the final artworks. The titles refer to the co-ordinates of the location.
A single Birch tree rises above the mist and are silhouetted against the dawn sky within Ashdown Forest (Sussex, England), digitally montaged with various textures to create this serene landscape artwork.
