Picture of the Month

I saw ...." .... a laurel tree. This month's image is very much an experiment for me. It is a composite of nine images based on cross sections through the trunk of an old laurel tree I cut down in the autumn. It is done in egg tempera with some embellishment with watercolour pencils. The photograph is my own amateurish shot, so doesn't display the piece at its best. Even so, I thought it might be of interest for its novelty, but in subject-matter and medium. Also, I've never attempted a composite image before in quite the same way.
