Acrylic on Canvas
I spent nearly a month working on this before i got the colours and shading exactly how i wanted them. Most of my work was spent filling in the backgrounds, the base layers of the colour i wanted, and then building on top of those over and over again. The tree especially probably cost me the most time, but the entire painting is dozens (if not hundreds in places) of layers of translucent pigments. The tree itself also has real rose petals in it, and i used masking techniques with it to increase the layer effect and give it the impression of a floral texture.Please feel free to download and/or distribute this image
. While i'd like print sales (the original was already sold), i'm more concerned with people getting joy and peace from this image. So please feel free to use this for your own purposes, even if you want to print it out, just enjoy it. All i ask is that credit remains where credit is due. I put a light watermark on the image; i tried not to make it too obnoxious, but please leave it there if you digitally distribute this image.
