At first glance William Smeets’ drawings appear photographic. Closer inspection reveals Smeets has consummately captured the tree's gnarled trunk and twirling bark with a humble pencil. Each drawing is dominated by a grand gum tree at the centre of the composition. Smeets’ choice to focus on a  small section fittingly reflects his highly detailed approach.

Smeets began his passion for drawing at the Adelaide Central School of Arts before relocating  to Sydney and now Melbourne. He documents his urban environment through drawing but is regularly enticed into to the landscape by his passion for en plein air sketching. All four trees pictured in his Kangaroo Island Cape Willoughby series are located within a kilometre of one another and hold  significant personal meaning to the artist.
