The Hunter’s Shimmering Forest (Large)
About this piece
A 36 x 36 x 1.5 inches large original oil on canvas. The painting is a very colourful, semi abstract landscape and has a white barn owl hovering in the gap between the trees above the woodland path. Her attention is on something we cannot see. The painting style is abstract expressionist, art deco and a little art nouveau and was created using thick oil paint that is slightly glossy. The canvas is deep edged and white with a hint of blue. A frame is not necessary. I painted the bright colours using varying brush sizes, wet into wet method, using lots of linseed oil and the tree and light shapes began to form as I did this. The owl went in last as I wanted her there to look after the final scene.
