Dappled - light through tree canopy

Filter

    I just found this miniature watercolor painting while mucking out my studio! I painted it last spring, experimenting and enjoying this new and foreign medium. The reference is from a photo I took while wandering Longwood Gardens in PA--such an amazing place!!

    I'm absolutely bananas about trees and dappled light! Is there any combination more lovely or colorful? I feel so protected while in under a canopy of fresh spring growth! The light dances and bounces illuminating the entire color spectrum.

    Transport yourself to the peace and tranquility of the shade of a tree, with the glorious sun sparkling beneath and through the lush foliage. This miniature has so many abstract qualities that it is marvelous enlarged and viewed up close and personal. ~Tali
