View Full Version : abstract tree scene

This is 14x18, mat board primed with lascaux pastel ground.
Have been painting a lot today. I like this kind of very strong colorful abstract pieces (very latin american, i guess). This doesn't belong to my glowing tree series, but it was fun to do. For a change, i put some leaves on this set of trees.
C&C welcome.

You have a way of making those bold colors work. Nice!

Thank you, Dru...the more i paint, the more i feel like this is my personal style. Although i also like landscapes, but i realize that the effect on me of one of these abastracts vs a landscape is quite more powerful...

Thank you, Lynne. I thought the hills would really sing with that color against the intense yellow.

Thank you, Donna. There's something about pastels that i just can't resist to use the bright bold colors. I think painting abstracts is a result of my need to go back to those color choices over and over. When painting nature it is more difficult to get there...but i still like that as well.
