As it seems such a long time since posting the sketch of the London Fireworks on the first day of the year, I looked round to find something to post. I've been working on some more MAGIC GARDEN pieces for a Spring show and dug out this VIEW OF THE TREES from my store cupboard to bring back to life.
I don't think you have ever seen this particular one I was not too pleased with, so I added lots of my gutta shiny glissening paint usually used on silk to give it some oomph and played with the treeline. I also took my own advice about 'more darks' and think the outcome is much improved.
please enlarge to see the effect of the shine.

I love the effect of the gutta added to the flowers! What fascinating texture. This certainly looks like a magic garden!

Interesting to consider similarities between a sky full of fireworks and a field full of flowers.
