The Popsicle Tree
I used paint colour, temperature, and brush strokes to play the different shapes against each other. For instance, the red tree, blue mountain, and yellow shrub are the 3 primary colours. The large green tree brings your eye into the piece. The brush strokes and colour of the red tree bring you to a stop with a slight vibration. The cool blue and purple of sky and ground, coupled with the yellow shrub cool the temperature down, and again the brushstrokes on mountain and sky allow the eye to leave the painting. It is a fun, bold, yet somehow restful piece.
