New Addition to my Dawn Series of Kookaburra Art

One of the fascinating things I see in the material I select for my art, is the variations of colour depending on time of day, how the light falls and what moisture is about. The gum trees in my garden are a constant source of delight. I photograph and sketch them regularly and every day…
