"Fighting For The Light"
This morning, while cleaning off my palette, I looked out my studio window at the beautiful winter woods! The forest is very dense with very little sunlight getting through the canopy of branches and evergreens! It occurred to me to use my old and almost dried out paint to try to capture the many wonderful trees vying for the very limited and much needed light! It has always interested me the way trees and undergrowth seem to compete for the sun's gift!
Today I am happy that I decided to try to capture this sunlight battle on canvas!
I always scrape off my unused palette paint on canvases to use later as under paint. Today while I was applying the used paint to the canvas the forest started to appear. This is the magic I often talk about! This painting was quite a challenge for me because I limited myself to only the paint left on my palette, painted quickly, and used only one brush! Of course I did use my fingers a bit!
Enjoy the day!
