woodland walk

acrylic on canvas

i’m falling in love with the light these days, miraculous transformations when the clouds dissapear and sunbeams filter through the trees . this is a painting of a path in the colzium public grounds in kilsyth, a lovely walking space


trees, forest, light

    So refreshing, I love the color pallet and the wonderful feel of being beneath the trees that you have created with the shadows and sun. The dimension of air space and your use of color-perspective is well accomplished. So lovely Matthew ~ Elaine

  • thanks so much elaine, i was struck so much by the colours that emerge when the sun beats down, and that peaceful calm of the shady canopy, timeless almost mystical moments walking like this, thanks again
