“Vertical Sculptural Trees” is the fifth painting in my Sculptural Trees collection, part of my Forest Series. The dark greens, purples, browns, and whites of this painting are consistent with the colour palette of the general collection. In this painting, in particular, a pale olive green colour runs along the tree branches and a bright red ochre makes a statement in the background.
A reference photograph taken during a walk along the Belgian coast is the inspiration for this painting. I was drawn to the twisting, interlacing trees and strong shadows of this scene. Because most of the tree branches extend from one side of the canvas to the other, the light forms of the trees fill the canvas and encourage visual movement across the work. The foliage in the background is largely abstracted yet tonal differences suggest depth.
This painting is 80 x 100 cm/31.5 x 39 in. and comes outfitted with a metal wire for easy hanging. A certificate of authenticity (COA) is included with the purchase of this painting.
