Trees are nearly always part of a landscape painting and each artist has their own preferences for certain trees, such as the palm tree, the pine tree, and others. One of these is the Eucalyptus. There are many types, but here we will look at the Bluegum tree because of its colour, and the fact that its bark peels off in fascinating ways and patterns.
