I love the way the base of a bald cypress tree will widen out when it grows in a very damp area. This one is standing in Butler Creek at the Phinizy Swamp. The drawing is mostly about my enjoyment of the dark and light interlocking patterns of the cypress tree base and the lush growth around it.
The water is tea-colored because of the presence of tannin compounds from decomposing plants - it's not pollution.
