Light on Branches
I am always fascinated by sunlight, this time on the random way that slivers of light graze branches in a forest.
I used an especially rough ground as I try to find the ideal amount of tooth to make for “a come and go light” … broken light if you wish, not unlike the impressionists’ approach. The impressionists broke the pigment and I am trying to get the ground to break the colour while at the same time layering the colours like in tapestry. I think this is quite successful.
