Deep, Deep Woods

One day I did a bunch of textured ink washes on paper. I had them laying all over the place! Then I unwrapped them all and looked at the texture. I still have some just waiting to be finished! This is one of those pieces. I thought it would be really easy, the tree shapes seemed really defined and I really like the colors. Well, it wasn't! Surprise, surprise!!!! (Every so often a painting comes together in a fast, fluid manner but for the most part there is no such thing as EASY!!!!) Anyway, I've been working on it and thinking about it and working on it and here it is—finished!!!!! I'm happy with it! I put a lot of iridescent paint in the water, so in the right light it really has a sheen, kind of like how the light changes sometimes from darker to lighter. It seems really remote to me, hence the name.
