Title: Under the Canopy (Trees/Sunlight Wood)
Media: Oil on Canvas
Price: £250 Unframed
Size unframed: 100cm x 40cm
A woodland with little light. I stood under the canopy to know what it felt like to be part of that place, immersed in trees with the sights and sounds of its heart and hardly any direct sunlight. The reflected light enhanced all of the shapes and colours and made the day memorable. I am reminded of it whenever I walk in woodland.
The difficulty in painting this work was the absence of sky. The far distance is made of trees and is therefore uncommonly green, but I think the green distance created the atmosphere in this work.
