This painting is a reworking of an oil painting inspired by a walk in Durford Wood, Hampshire on a frosty morning.
With the icy terrain and cool glistening colours it felt like I was walking through an alpine forest. I was particularly taken by the strange vivid hues in the tree trunks and surrounding landscape of violet, minty greens and cool yellows.
I love the colours green, violet and yellow together- they have a pleasing harmony being complimentary colours on the colour wheel.
The dark woods in the background gave a sense of forboding and added to the narrative of the frozen and desolate scene.
This painting is pastel on 20 x 20cm canson paper
