Thanks for looking and anything you might have to say.

This is an experiment induced by the first pic in my last tree posting. http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1373766

I wasn't completely happy with the way the tree came out, so I got out my painting knife and did this. I hope it's obvious that I'm going for a certain energy here.

If you like it, props to Tripod for his latest series of posts. All faults in the image are mine.

6X6 in. on foam core board.

Aye, The dramatic color display energy for sure, almost aflame. Good work!

And I like your knifework. The leaves seem to be "springing" out of the tree, and right at us! A lot of movement in the trees, and in the background.

Lots of energy in this for sure. I like the bark effect in the treetrunk on the right as well.

Love the branches in the tree! I agree with ColinS! Lots of energy in this!

Thank you everyone for the feedback. I think I'm going to declare victory on this experiment.

I have two small paintings in the works where I use this style. I'll post them in a day or two.

Thanks again.

As already said, a lot of energy in this. Such interesting texture in the tree.
