Cernunnos, the horned one, is the Celtic god of the forest. Resplendent in autumn’s riches, this lordly beech seems a worthy successsor, high on the slope with its heavy, curled antler-branches. Beech frequently grows fabulous shapes and it is to emphasise these that I use the stark, classic monochrome of pen and Indian ink in contrast with the flow of coloured-ink foliage and forest floor.
