Forest Floor

36"x 60" Oil on canvas

Ready to hang

This painting was created in rural Austria. I painted this work using classical realism method, studying the subject (the forest floor) in its environment, absorbing it into the body, and later transferring it onto canvas in the studio. Unlike the plein air method of painting directly on site, this classical technique allows a deep understanding and melding with the subject, life is never stilled and its motion is clearly conveyed.
