As much as I enjoy creature work, portraits, life sketches etc, I always seem to get the most “inner peace” from painting landscapes. Especially non-commissioned work just for my own pleasure.
This painting is largely unfinished as of writing -12th Nov 2016- but I’ve never been in any real stress to finish it either. There are many aspects I love about it ( is it conceited to like some of your own work ? Im not
sure!). The mountain tree was much inspired from a trip to Guillin in China some years ago that I’ve juct been meaning to do something with for a long time.
