New Forest Trees With Shadows - acrylic painting
The subject of this painting is a section of the New Forest, near to Ashurst and the main railway line between Bournemouth and Southampton. The tall fir trees make a dark scene with the summer light falling across the view, highlighting the trunks and picking out details of the surrounding trees.
It is painted in acrylics on stretched watercolour paper, measuring 16” x 12”. It took a few days to paint but actually took a few months to complete due to other projects, and was not completed until early May 2017.
The final painting can be seen here.
