Further studies. The trunk of a tree.

The hard part for me is holding on to the flatness of the image in these. As I have mentioned before, there is a strong sense in the garden of the stage flat, the tilting towards me which is of course at variance with the idea of recessional space. I can get near to it in the drawings but the use of colour creates its own problems. Letting go of some aspects of the way that I put paint on is another issue. I was also amused to uncover Lucien Freud"s version of Constable's Study of the trunk of an elm tree.c.1821 in the Victoria and Albert Museum. amongst my papers
