The Prosperous Forest
I have always liked the look and idea of one composition on several canvases. This is my first one, and I put everything into it. It only took four days to paint, but when it was completed I had to go to bed for several days because I was exhausted. It will always be my favourite piece thus far!
This is a Tryptych, which is one composition on three canvases. I love the colours, the depth from many layers of glaze, and the slight sense of mystery about the piece. The ruins of an old oriental looking building on the left adds mystery, and the sunlight streaming through the trees pulls the viewers in to this magical and prosperous forest.
