Scribbly Gum Image
by Trish Neil
This image was developed in a similar fashion to the previous one. The colours are different; it depends on the time of year the original image was taken. The outer bark is shed at various times throughout the year, but mostly late winter & early spring. The new bark that shows through underneath is bright cream and the scribble insect tracks are a rich red-brown. As the year goes on, the bark colours fade until they are a subtle blue/grey and the tracks are dark grey.
He looks very sad, this one – a grey, downcast creature, feeling rather vulnerable.
