Saudade depicts an old wisened tree enveloped by years of ivy growth, a shroud of lacework softening its remains. The tree stands centrally within the frame reaching out its gnarled branches, cutting a lonely figure… by contrast the landscape around it drops away. As the light hits the rich candle smoke what appears to be black silhouette reveals a deep warm brown, akin to turtle shell, with soft tonal changes. The sky is replaced by mirror clear and open, reflecting its ever-changing surroundings, giving rise to infinite possibilities.
