A world of green

The Tendrils Series continues into the New Year. Here I explored a range of greens, pushing them into warm and cool, then anchoring them with a middle-tone, middle-temperature green. As well as playing various temperatures off of one another, I'm doing a Hans Hoffman push-pull with value; the lights and darks in the tendrils imply a range of distances, and the three-dimensional effect is defied by the flat background.

Titled "Forest Tendrils," this work is acrylic on canvas, 40 inches square.
