The Trees

Medium: Oil on canvas

The title of the painting reflects the original subject matter, a stand of trees in Sefton Park, Liverpool. I made a watercolour sketch on site and then developed this painting back in my studio space in college. I wanted to have strong colours in contrast with each other. I put the blue at the bottom to try and up end the convention of having blue represent the sky.
