Oil on Canvas 120cmx90cm
A painting from 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. A mix of Cadmium Yellow Deep (LeFranc) and Ultramarine Blue (Lucas 1862) for the dark green, with Permanent Magenta (Daler-Rowney) added for the grey tones. Chrome Yellow light (Daler-Rowney) and Cobalt Blue
