This is another painting I did with light through the trees. They are more translucent, and sparse. It’s challenging, I had to do it a couple times before I was satisfied. It’s all about the negitive space, the holes, trying not to create patterns, and making it random. I think it would be beneficial to do more of these in the near future.
Blocked out where there was too many leaves. Put in some of the background elements. Reworked the sketch in of the people. Might have to do more with all of that. Then I will work on the ground, and the picture has gallery edges.
'Art should serve a purpose other than itself.' Kath Kollwitz. 'Painting is drawing on canvas and engraving is drawing on copper and nothing else. Drawing is execution and nothing else'. (Blake,c.1809)
