My parents' friends have a cabin in the woods in North Carolina. They took this picture and asked me to do an acrylic of it. God's creation is so magnificent, its hard to re-create that, but I did my best and they were really happy with the result. I started with a value study in all neutrals (basically, varying shades of brown because I wanted it to have a warm undertone). Then, for the fun part! COLOR. I love color. I love contrast. I love texture. One of my favorite things though is the blue sky peeking through. I think my favorite favorite thing about this though, was the process. I used my fingertips for the majority of the foliage. It was a great tactile experience...I felt like a kindergartener.
Art inspired by God's word and all of his creation
