About this image:
This giclee was made from a 24 x 24 inch oil. My intention was to fill the painting with trees and leaves, all in motion and to keep it loose. I never imagined that after making a few marks with pinks and yellows, that the oil would essentially paint itself!
It was as if the oil was making demands. I insisted to keeping the slanted composition design for the top and bottom, but I was open to what the colors would be.
It didn’t take long to find out what direction that was going to take. I started with some medium yellow leaves and very quickly, it was if the painting was pushing me: for a different yellow, now a blue, now greys and whites, then different yellows all over again. The pace was pretty fast, not my usual method, but I happily followed along as more colors were added to what was becoming a lacy wood.
The foreground was painted along with the rest, a result of some of those same yellows lightly mixed together, but brighter.
All the leaves were swiftly painted in, as if by magic. There was a wonderful potential here and by adding the light tree trunks and branches and new depth and delicacy appeared.
I took a break, came back and added a few darks along the bottom tree line and then the blues in the upper right. It was done and it still seems magical.
