Artist's description:

Expressionist oil pastel and graphite painting of a small patch of wilderness - willow trees being struck down by storms that relentlessly continue to grow - directly done outdoors as the expressionists of old. I like the display of that energetic determination of life, also the challenge to the artist to disentangle the complexity of the branch architecture - and the standing in the centre of an intense 3-D structure. - - - Mostly I sketch, draw and paint directly from nature, in front of a model or object - keeping this practice feeds into my work as a sculptor, printmaker and conceptual artist. Oil pastel is a great medium for the expressionist - graphite adding 3-D effect, is the sculptor coming through. Such an 'oil pastel and graphite object' breathes so much authenticity, holding it in your hands you will feel its preciousness.

The very handy collection format is A4 - 21 x 29.7 cm - it's a grey Daler-Rowney's Murano Paper - the actual image about 19.7 x 28.5 cm, leaving an about 5 mm edge from having been masking taped during its making. All reasonable efforts are made to provide a good representation of colour, however due to computer monitor limitations, some variation may occur. Please see the second, third and fourth image for close up details of the artwork, and please consider that all my works look better in real life. - - - Thanks for clicking 'Favourite' and 'Follow' - you may like to check out my Instagram account @er for some backstage info - please don't hesitate if you have a question about this work, just click on the contact bottom below as I am happy to hearing from you.
