Description

This painting is based on a large water colour sketch that I made of a tree with really bright yellow leaves, in Nunnawading, Melbourne.
When making this painting based on the sketch, I intensified the colours surrounding the tree to try and create an image that would catch the viewer's eye in the same way that the original tree had caught my eye. Seeing a recent exhibition of David Hockney this year at the NGV, Melbourne, it reminded me about the use of strong colours - that they can be so effective. I have always liked botanical paintings of birds - I decided to add birds to the painting to give it extra life.
