Tree root

001c

A tree root at the side of a path at Zealandia (Karori Wildlife Sanctuary) caught my eye when I was sitting on a bench.  The root grew out and into the soil, the small tree hanging on on the top of the small cliff face.  I made a quick sketch and later gave that a water colour wash to bring out some of the shadows.
