If my paintings were sculptures I normally sculpt in clay. I add and add layers. This was created like a stone sculpture, I started with a wild underpainting, and then eliminated details to reveal the focal point. Negative space is what this is all about, turns out you can paint a beautiful tree by only painting sky.

Love this result. I hope you try more of the negative space technique. You do it so well.
Extraordinary! I’ve never seen anything like it. I know I’ll come back to it many times, to see the embedded shapes, while never losing sight of the overall. Your talent is amazing.
Wow! Thanks for your kind words.
Oh my goodness Julie! This is my new favorite piece!! What an amazing and unique technique you’ve used. I love it!
