Less is more!

I think I may have found a style to suit me. I like detail but more often than not I allow this to overwhelm my work instead of focussing on the balance of the painting. I also like the idea of painting a rough estimation of what I remember rather than a non too perfect representation of what is actually there:

I love the simplicity of this painting. When we visited Westonbirt recently, the first trees we saw were a row of beautiful and elegant pine trees. The sun was incredibly bright (hence the yellow ‘ribbon’ winding through the trees) and as we walked through the arboretum there were many sudden ‘shocks’ of brilliant red acers.
I had hoped my painting would be somewhat more abstract, however, for a first attempt at letting go of rigid lines and dimensions, I don’t think this is too bad!
