This was originally a pen sketch of a tangle of mangrove roots. I love sketching these as they have such rhythm and wonderful negative shapes. They sometimes talk about mangroves as trees that walk... Recently I picked up this little sketch and ran a red ochre wash over it. A few days later I picked up a sort of fragile leafy thing that probably came out of a floral arrangement (hording and recycling again). I wondered what if ... I anchored the leaf lightly on the drawing on a diagonal so it folds over the top. Then I wondered what if ...

Over the next few days I ran alternate washes of a gorgeous Daler Rowney Autumn Gold, a pearlescent liquid acrylic which I have just rediscovered, and my other rediscovery my fave aussie blue gum. Gold...blue...gold...blue...gold. I'm not wondering what if anymore as I now love this tester and, being on good paper with a torn edge it can now be floated in a frame.

This was originally a pen sketch done one morning in the Daintree, the fantastic world heritage rainforest area in Far North Queensland. A very different environment to where we live on the West coast which has a Mediterranean climate with long dry Summers! in fact I remember feeling totally overwhelmed with all the greens and dripping rain everywhere.

Years later I decided to play with the sketch so put some colour on it, thinking of the bright sunlight in the early morning
