Description: This is a picture of the oak tree in my back garden. It is over 300 years old and I wanted to capture its majesty and permanance. I also have a pond and gazebo like structure in the garden which I have incorporated into the picture. The various animals have been developed from doodles whilst the name of the picture is because the tree sometime acts as a roost for ravens amongst other birds.
I wanted to have bold colours and the red earth adds some depth to the painting.
