Forestfloor study WIP

Pin It

A WIP of a fallen tree laying on a forest floor covered with leaves. Oil on canvasboard 20x15cm.
I'm doing studies this year of subjects I find difficult to paint to hopefully grow as an artist.
Seeing structure in what looks like chaos (all those leaves) and being able to simplify that into manageable brushstrokes (without painting every single leaf) is proving to be hard :)

To be continued..
