Dancing Red Trees An Abstraction
This under painting on canvas was textured with media, papers, leaves, and sanded between layers. As I worked the surface with my brush, red trees danced. I applied seven or eight layers of paint between each sanding to create depth. The negative spaces need defining I think and perhaps the background layer needs color adjustment. My stimuli for this piece were my drawings from a summer trip searching for petroglyphs in Utah and New Mexico.
Finished? Maybe? Maybe Not?
