Sycamore Pixellation

It was raining. We were at a friend’s flat- a warehouse conversion with beautiful exposed beams, and I clicked these snaps.

And through the beautiful exposed rafters.

That got me thinking.

One of my favourite trees, the sycamore, has this beautiful dappled bark. Close up, this is what it looks like.

Could it be that Van Gogh and the other impressionists and post-impressionists were inspired by the rain pattering on a window, and the bark of a tree? Look at this self portrait for instance.
