Bark The Seventh

This painting, perhaps the seventh in my bark series (I have more to do, just thought I’d stray from convention a little by numbering this one in no particular order!) was created using a layer of dried leaves to form the background area. I pasted them on using a bit of PVA plus some texture paste to add more depth. I have then painted over them with a mixture of greens. The tree trunk was modelled in acrylic texture paste with a palette knife first, then painted in a slightly impressionistic style with lots of layers of colours built up which resulted in a vibrant, earthy feel to the end result. The painting as a whole is a very texturised one, which would be better viewed in real life, as the depth cannot be captured completely on camera!
