GOODWILL ART GUIDE — Painting the Environment


TREES



Trees can have a profound effect on people’s lives. Perhaps that is why the loss of significant local trees causes an outcry in the community; the burning of rain forests has a menace of global catastrophe.
The elemental role of trees can be traced through art history. In Britain, yews in churchyards, rings of downland beeches and sacred oaks are reminders of legends. Such trees were sought out by ‘picturesque’ painters. Then Constable made them look ‘natural’, at a time when delicate ‘idealised’ trees were still being painted in the Orient.
