The abstract in Nature, acrylic on canvas by 

This is the last of the 7 paintings I had to make for the group show coming up in February at the Cityscape Art Gallery in North Vancouver. There had to be a mountain somewhere in the picture and I had 2 lines I needed to incorporate somehow in my composition. I used mostly acrylic with a lot of layers, and a bit of gouache at the beginning.

My inspiration was a picture taken on the way to Banff, Alberta, Canada.

    I like the shape of the white bumpy trees – When I paint them they are so boring – Yours are interesting and varied.

  • Thanks Lora, I painted them with a dropper, you can try it, it is fun :-)
