This painting of a huge Willow explores the variety of shades of light, ranging from golden to green, filtered through the new spring leaves of the tree. I have aimed to reveal that quality of looking up at this giant and feeling ensconced in its dancing shade.
Oil on canvas, size 60 cms x 42 cms, stretcher is 3cms deep. This painting has been made on excellent quality, acid-free, 300gsm, 100% cotton canvas which is twice gesso primed to take oil paint. The stretcher is pine wood. The paints themselves are blended with organic oils and natural glazes which are designed to last through the ages, and which keep the paint looking radiant and full of lustre.
