Australian Summer

Australian gum leaves are one of my favourite subjects to paint, and I simply can't resist using a free approach to my colour palette, often allowing the weather or my mood to dictate the colours used.   


The background is left unpainted, so the natural linen fibers show through.  The natural brown weave is the perfect backdrop against oranges and pinks like these.
