This is an original acrylic ink on canvas. It is based on the woodlands at Trengwainton Gardens in Cornwall.
It was late summer when I visited Trengwainton Gardens with the family. It is a beautiful place to visit full of inspiration for the artist that loves to paint trees! I wanted to convey the magic I felt walking through the woods with the light streaming through the trees. As always I am fascinated by the patterns the branches create as they intertwine. There is an essence of the tropical at Trengwainton with the warmer climate down in Cornwall with the abundance of ferns and pines.
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 50cmx60cm and 3.8cm deep. The edges have been painted in a soft green so it is ready to hang.
