Filtered light dappled the wonderful trees and foliage. The sun playing hide and seek behind clouds in the afternoon gave glimpses first of bright light and then sudden chilly shadows.
Our spur of the moment trip to the Valley of the Giants, Western Australia has given me some lovely memories of the high canopy tree top walk. Of course, I did take just a ‘few photo’ as well.
Creating the Painting
I wanted to use an existing paper, so that there was a hint of background there already.
After searching my studio, I found an old 8×10 inch watercolor painting that was just right. Then rinsed most of the paint off. What paint that was left, became my background for the new painting.
I then painted the trees in acrylics with a palette knife.
It certainly is one way to remember our 900 kilometres in 24 hours trip.
