Artwork description:

This painting of stringybark trees was inspired by one of my many walks in the South Australian countryside.

The stringybark is a very tall straight tree and the bark is rough, fibrous and stringy, hence it’s common name.
There are 28 species of Stringybarks recognised in Australia, and they are restricted to South Australia, Victoria, New South Wales and Queensland.
Stringybarks are common rough-barked forest and woodland trees occurring on a variety of sites and often on nutritionally poor soils.
In exceptionally fertile locations some stringybark species (in particular messmate stringybark (Eucalyptus obliqua) can be very large, reaching over 80 metres in height.
More typically, stringybarks are medium-sized trees in the 10 to 40 metre range
A VERY USEFUL TREE
The bark can be used for many things including bark paintings, shelters early settlers huts, canoes and dishes after it has been treated. The wood of the tree can also be used to make tools and weapons.

Materials used:

oil paint
