Birnum Wood, Acrylic

Forest I designed for my illustration class taught by Alice Bunny Carter. This was my interpretation of Birnum Wood for the play Macbeth. The inspiration for my design, was a giant redwood with bark that twisted up its trunk. It also had giant finger-like roots that engulfed the forest floor. I revisited the redwoods to find more trees of this nature and study the movement of the bark. Rendering the bark was so much fun, it was hard moving on to other parts of the painting.
