This ancient oak is special to many local people. I have tried to capture the feeling of its enormity, the subtle colours and textures in its bark, the tingly feeling that the tree gives me when I stand next to it (or in it, as it’s hollow), that it’s somehow communicating is represented with a subtle white layer of pattern that reaches out from the branches.
