Forest

*

Forest, oil on card, 13.5 x 15.5 cm




This was painted about a year ago, but for some reason never shown.

 I think at the time  I felt it  facile. Now, however, I quite like it.

  1. That's lovely, reminds me a little of Katz whose work can also seem facile at first, yet when you look closer reveals the extent of observation - the patterns and colours honed down to simplicity.
    I'm actually working on a forest series just now, to capture the sense of energy and pattern in simple brushstrokes is challenging, it's easier to create detail!

    1. Hi Rose,

      Yes, I do find Katz insipid. But I haven't seen many in the flesh so when I get the chance I'll take a closer look.

      Forests are marvelous subjects- good luck with your work.
