There’s a beautiful oak in a hedge on top of a hill above Buckfast Abbey in Devon, on a road which leads to the abandoned former parish church of Buckfastleigh. This print is based on that tree.
After giving it several different backgrounds I’ve finally settled on a gilded, golden one. I printed the background by printing gold ink, brushing that with gold pigment while wet and sealing it all with an acrylic varnish. I then printed the black tree on top.
