Whether it’s on cut timber, wooden posts, fences, or driftwood that has washed ashore, I always look at the patterns, colours and textures in the exposed woodgrain. These natural designs, showing growth rings and other internal tree structures, are often accentuated by etching and weathering of the elements; and enhanced by the colonisation and colouration of different types of lichens. I particularly like the combination of woodgrain textures with the subtle and delicate grey-green hues of the encrusting lichens on the fence posts illustrated here.
