There a a couple of places in the woods that I like to revisit regularly for years now. One of those is a the edge of a beech forest clearing. Big trunks and tree stumps, coarse woody debris, are exposed to the elements, rain and heat throughout the year. I love the ,many delicate greys and browns that occur on old pieces of wood when the bark has come off. This is a small oil pastel study in my sketchbook.
