Towards The Light

Towards The Light
7in x 5in or 17.8 cm x 12.7cm
Oil on canvas board.

I am experimenting with a new way of working, small sketches in oils with a view to larger paintings from the sketches. This is one of those oil studies. I am seriously in love with the deep green of tree tunnels in the late spring, the wonderful refreshing joy of green! After the long sleep of winter all of a sudden the trees burst forth like a waterfall full of so many shades of beautiful green, sunlight breaks through and highlights tiny specks of pure gold within the darkest cool of the woods.
