Spencer Gorge

This is a painting I did years ago but still really enjoy. It came about as a bit of a fluke. I had painted the ground a firey red/orange and after having sketched in the tress, began painting around them. Well, I got so caught up in the background I forgot to work the whole of the painting, and when I was done I looked at what was before me. And I liked it! I felt that if I had painted the trees in, it would have lost it's punch . Frankly, it conveys the true feel of the woods that day.
