Forest


This is a painting that is almost finished. I painted it on an old tatty piece of wood. There was something magnetic about the piece of wood that drew me to want to paint it!
I'm not sure what to do to it next, I'll look at it tomorrow and see what I think about it then.

It's quite small so I managed to scan it in 2 halves and stitch it back together in Photoshop. I've got another one I've almost finished too and if the day is light enough, I'll take a photo to show it here.
I think the red tree is me.

Both of these--yesterday and today's are stunning--and I love that you're letting them tell you what they need next.

This is being completed on wood?! Wow. I am seriously impressed, Jessie. I look forward to your finished piece. :)

Jessie said...

Thank you so much! It's difficult to be objective about paintings that you've just finished isn't it? Thanks so much for your kind comments, it'll spur me on today :)

I love the depth you got in this one Jessie, the shimmering light beautiful color balance too. I do like you way of painting.
Got that thing with paintings too, the need to put them aside do something else and come back to them later with a cleared mind.
Beautiful work! x renilde
