Tons of photography, then I trained a GAN using hundreds of the photos, then crossbred the generated images with a load of other stuff using custom genes, then some editing and mixed media on top of that.
Couple of oil sketches I made in situ with the 600 year old yew. One colour only. Massive faff cos my turps spilt over my hands and the rags blew away. And then I had to carry them both home trying not to smudge them.
This one is of a branch section where there's a split and then it comes back together. Looks to me like praying hands.
This one is a section where it looked to me like a whale or other giant animal
few cloud-themed ones from last year, just done with cheap poster/lino paints that my boss gave me. classic thing where i didn't care too much as i started on them, so i feel like they've got a bit of verve as a result, but then i spent more time on them and the little imperfections now, like the wrinkles in the page, annoy me. but there you go.
