Inspired by a walk in nature I set out to paint the ultimate forest landscape in an impressionistic style one day in my studio space. I scanned through my own photo archives, as well as photos I had taken earlier during the day. I came up with a few concept sketches which I will share on here as soon as I get a chance to scan them in. But here is the final result.
There are many times artists will set-out to create something and never be able to reach that vision from the mind – so hard it is to transfer your mental concept into a painted work. I have to say I am proud of this work and think it will forever be one of my favorites. Have a look at some of the close up pictures here and see what you think – they almost look like paintings in themselves.
