14/2: Some woods, somewhere, sometime – finished painting


I had other ideas for this painting but it developed into something wholly other. I don’t think that’s a bad thing. The branches may have been overworked which makes me want to create more spaces behind the branches next time. I guess if I was working in oils I could still work into it. I used a mix of Prussian blue/Sepia for the darkest areas. Click on images for gallery.

I’m looking forward to spring so that I can take photos with warmer colours. At the moment the colours in the painting reflect the season. I was listening to alot of Blue note kind of Jazz today (please forgive me) which made me loose myself in my painting for a long time, hence the title of this post.

I’m in the process of turning some of my paintings into Prints to sell. I’ll post details soon. If you have trouble with seeing any images or want to contact me, please send me a message on Twitter @Donald Flake or Facebook .
