This is an original acrylic ink on canvas. It is based on an actual woodlands in Cornwall.
Other than conveying the many beautiful Autumnal colours to be found in an English woodland, I also wanted to try and convey a sense that the woods go on and on, taking you on a journey of discovery. Autumn, for me, is such an uplifting season. Even though the leaves are starting to die and fall from the trees the carpet they create is very evocative of my childhood. I spent many a day kicking leaves and running through them, feeling at home in the woods.
As always with my acrylic inks I threw the ink onto the canvas and splattered, dripped and scraped it on to build the texture and layers. The canvas is 60cmx60cm and 4cm deep. The edges have been painted in a soft green so it is ready to hang.
