Influenced by the abstract minimalist compositions of traditional Japanese & Chinese ink paintings where blank spaces are an integral part of the composition, the abstract shapes and tones of the composition were my first consideration. Linear lines were kept simple, cross contouring the forms and textures of my subjects..
The rich copperish hue I could see in my minds eye,.. it had to be just right.. With a few sample tests, a strong mixture of raw umber & light red watercolour got the result desired.
Luckily I had first hand reference of the mangrove tree from a few life sketches I had done a few years back at Morib where their remains, like skeletons, haunt their salty waters.
