This one is in process. It is oil on canvas paper and was drawn on location directly on the canvas paper, in Redwood Park, and was painted from memory, as well as with a photo that had elements of the same location in it, but which wasn't the same picture as the sketch. The trees are not redwoods by the by. But of course anyone would know that they were Thujas.

A lot of refining has gone into it; and a fair bit more work there is yet. You can see the direction that the floor of the forest is headed in: it is the start of what hopefully will be the enticingly speckled, or dappled lights you come across in the woods.
