16″x20″ mixed media

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.
