Finally finished a major project that I have been working on for some time! 'Night Tree - Home Tree', acrylic on canvas, 20x30 inches.
This painting features a proud and old white gum tree in the night. Seen in the daylight, a rich array of colours are revealed, while in the comparative darkness of inside, the shape of the tree becomes more clear and the 'magic' array of colours fades to dark blue (please swipe photos to see this difference). This painting has been made as a result of many layers; firstly a impasto layer to ceate texture, then several paint layers, highlighting the different colors in the night and in the tree, finally a tinted impasto gel medium was applied to create a clear (tinted), textured glaze over the entire painting. "In the night the wind sweeps through the leaves of the old white gum that stands guard over the greying fence and the little house residing by the street. Its leaves sway and its arms creak, dancing in the night. This is the great white gum, tallest among those in its skyline, the great gum of my youth."
