-  Messing About with Paint   -  Forest Walk

Oil on Canvas 122cmx92cm

The forest above Knysna. 

A palette based on the coloured lichen that grows on the forest floor. 

I focused on shadows and light, rather than on individual aspects within the green world of the forest.
From my magic box of paint, Van Dyk Zink Yellow, Cinnabar Green Light (No63) and Cadmium Orange (no16) for the highlights.
