TREE OF LIFE
Greetings from the C.A.M.
This TREE OF LIFE painting had been eluding me for a while, but I was finally able to capture it on canvas. A few months back I had painted a small version (6 x 6) & ever since then, I had an itch to paint it bigger.
I resined the trunk and branches on the smaller version for an embossed effect. I liked the end result so I may do it for the bigger version.
Let me know your thoughts in the comments.
I felt it was important for the bigger version, to paint a big bold beautiful T.O.L with the underground roots exposed and revealed. I feel that it is symbolic of, how we never really know what is going on “behind the scenes”. In this case, beneath the ground. Also of note is that I painted ten main branches. The number ten is sometimes associated with the Tree Of Life.
I finished the borders with some “atmosphere” effects using a broken stroke method with a script liner brush.
I hope you enjoyed the Tree Of Life. Have a fantastic spring and as always,
“Stay Creative & Keep on Painting!”
COLORS I USED:
Honeycomb stencil for enhanced effect.
