I`m gearing up to try for another large winter alder rain forest. The first
one was painted over, I didn`t get it right. For a painter, any forest is a complex web of information. What makes the coastal forest so elusive is the ethereal light. Alders are deciduous, so in the winter they`re completely visible. The trunks are encased in moss and the finer limbs shine with a silvery lichen. Without all the summer vegetation, one can see deep into the forest which seems to glow.
I love that bluey green you use a lot. In fact, I think I could recognise one of your paintings based on colour alone, now.
This is lookng great - forests are so difficult!
