In the Canopy: semi-abstract

I have been experimenting with going a bit looser and more abstract in some of my paintings. The other day, I saw the sun filtering through the trees in the woods, and decided to try to paint how the light affected me. This is one of my first attempts at abstracting somewhat what I see. The little bird on the right side represents me, looking at the beauty of the light and rejoicing in the beauty of what God has created.

In the woods, there were layers of leaves with light filtering through. I have a lot to learn about this type of painting – it’s a lot harder than it looks! But I enjoyed experimenting with different colors: pink, cad orange, plus my old favorites: Hansa yellow light, ultramarine, tit white, hooker green, burnt sienna and burnt umber.
