'Red Sentinels' January 2011
20 x 24 x 3/4
From my Tall Trees Series. Highly textured tall trees with many layers of glazed colors, this style has been a favorite for my collectors for years. I've done these trees in many different colors, including greens, golds, rusts and reds. I think this latest warm red version has a rich, Old World look and feel.

Here's the canvas during the texture phase. Trees are loaded with texture and there is a subtle fern-like texture throughout the canvas. Glazes of color are added a layer at a time. This one has rusty, warm red tones. The gloss finish really highlights the texture, especially the fern relief. Camera isn't doing this one justice.
