I live in the bush and am fortunate enough to be surrounded by beautiful flora and fauna. Gum trees are the lifeblood of the great Australian bush and their sheer variety and beauty manages to amaze me everyday. The scribbly gum tree is a eucalyptus tree with a very smooth, pale, alabaster trunk … the smooth, white texture just calls you to touch it. It also has beautiful scribbles, "nature’s doodles" I call them; running randomly over the bark like some long lost folk art. These distinctive brownish ‘scribbles’ are made by the larvae of the tiny scribbly moth. These larvae are harmless to the tree and, though found on many eucalypts, it’s only in a few varieties.
Today I give you 10 high-resolution textures of the bark of the great Scribbly gum. I have explored the satin smooth texture, the dark knots, the flaming red sap, the scribbles stitched onto the bark and some random scrapes of the bark. Some of the textures reflect the gorgeous late summer sun off the beautiful bark. Please feel free to use these textures as it suits your whims and fancies.
