Red Tree Painting

tree in red

16×20 Acrylic paint, impasto, pallet knife and brush on canvas

The background has impasto mixed with the black and white paint. I spread it on with a pallet knife and a little bit with a paint brush. I wanted the edges to be darker and show the lines of the knifes edge. Because I used impasto it becomes thicker, therefore, it takes longer to dry.

The tree- I chose to use two shades of reds along with black and white. I chose red because it would stand out to the background. I do have a little bit of red in the truck of the tree as well. My favorite Fall color is the red maple tree. I could use this just for Fall but I would use this all year long.
