Rainbow Forest, oil and enamel on canvas 73 x 92 x 2 cm
Rainbow Forest. Long shadows cast by a setting sun, hues of deep purple and pink. A kaleidoscope of colour, a Rainbow Forest.
Inspired by the setting sun and long summer evenings when violet blue shadows form and rays of light flicker and shimmer through forest trees. I love to walk my dogs alone in the evening forest. A comfortable solitude, a rainbow of colours. I wanted to create an impression of this moment. The viewer is met by a beautiful blend of colour which suggests forest or woodland with scattered leaves and twisted undergrowth. Juxtaposed against the strong line are ethereal butterflies, dancing in the evening light. The sun rays in Rainbow Forest are created with iridescent gold paint. Depending upon where the painting is hung and how much light reflects off it affects the strength of colour in the gold sun rays. Rainbow Forest is ready to hang.
