The Tree


I have the habit of trying out different media, either alone or in combination, on various supports. This helps me to understand how a medium behaves on a given support and how to manipulate the medium on the support to get the best effect. In the process I end up making several ‘practice paintings’! ‘The Tree’ is one such painting.
The Tree - 14"x 6" - Oil on paper
After sketching the tree on a textured paper, I colored it with a thin layer of oil paint, and left it to dry. I like this work because of the fine blend of colors and the form that creates an enjoyable effect. However, I am rather pleasantly surprised that it remains intact even after 12 long years!
