From the artist:
One of a series of tree portrait drawings (six so far). These ancient trees are like silent witnesses and I look for clues in the trees and landscape to find and portray this idea. The works go beyond graphic studies. This drawing is a portrait of liverpool’s most famous and impressive tree. About 1,500 years old, it has had and been part of a colourful history and i’ve incorporated some events that helped shaped the tree’s character, including, explosions, map of medieval hundred court, pre-historic rock markings and war souvenirs.
