looking up through trees – 9

Here is the final (centre) piece of my “Looking up through trees” series. The underpainting for this one was a combination of cad orange and yellow.

Tom’s haiku for the overall piece is written in India ink with a stylus on the finished centre painting. This was an experiment and I am still thinking about how text can be integrated into oil paintings in the best way to look part of the art.

Looking up through trees – all 9 paintings of the series together

I am quite happy with how this came together. Things don’t match perfectly but that wasn’t the intention. It’s the feeling of being there that I wanted to communicate.

This is going to be interesting to frame with small equal spaces between each panel. The gaps between panels will be black and the frame will have a black shadow gap at the edge. I may post the framed version once it’s ready.

Looking up through trees – 5

Next one in the series! The large tree in this painting is a hemlock. The under painting was transparent red medium with some cad orange.

Here is Tom’s haiku!

Sturdy standing trunk
Straight and tall unbending now
Sways in winter storms

Reaching up into blue sky
Breathing ocean air
