Edyth's Hornbeam Oils on board 13 x 9 inches
Lovingly planted 32 years ago, this Hornbeam was given to me as a sapling by my friend Edyth for our wild garden. It shares the paddock with Birches, Hazels and Oaks.
Autumn...and leaf fall provides a rich orange carpet
Edyth would be surprised to see it now..it must be 32 feet tall.
This simple study of branches and trunks was abstracted with expressive brush marks as I wanted a jumbled appearance with the emphasis on colour and shapes.
