Lichen and tree bark. I don't know why but every time I look at it I thinks its The Predator!! That's a good thing!
I chose this picture becauae of the different tones on the 'blotches' of bark. I like this because a creates a rough texture. I could recreate this well with oil pastels
✞When through the woods, and forest glades I wander, And hear the birds sing sweetly in the trees. When I look down, from lofty mountain grandeur And see the brook, and feel the gentle breeze.✞
