The original calendar photograph on first looking at it seems to be one mass of very orange stone with a tree standing strong against the elements. Seeing on this page it doesn't look so orange and much more defined but the actual photograph I was working from, is much more densely orange.

Then you look closely at its really full of life with grasses and other small trees. So I started out with the overall image but as I worked on I began to see all the other elements which is where my problems started I think. As I added to it the more muddy it got (just like a painting) and the heavier it got.(just weight it and it nearly ½lb!).
So I have decided to leave it where it is - for now
