Forest Interior 2012

The weather was too mild to paint in the studio. Gusty southwesterly winds and the odd spit of rain were great conditions compared with what they would be in another month or two. I wanted to practice my handling of fall foliage and the view toward the provincially significant wetland was perfect for that. It was a scene full of details and colour but only a small portion of it all could be included without getting lost in the forest. I liked the colour of the two red cedars - of course the sky poking through the holes in the forest canopy. Oils on burnt umber oil tinted foundation on commercial canvas - 10 X 8 (inches)
