An interesting grouping of trees.
There are a clump of trees that I see just before turning on to the main street where I live. From a distance they form a triangular shape which I find intriguing. It’s a little higher on the left and lower on the right and somewhat irregular. I like that.
Although this painting doesn’t resemble the rest of the landscape in real life, I really wanted to work with that triangular shape.
Sometimes when I paint things suggest themselves to me. That was the case with overgrown path in the foreground that splits when it gets to the trees. You could go either way if you were walking it. Hence the name for the piece – Which Way.
I also like that the path forms and a “V” shape which echos the tops of the trees in an inverted manner.
There’s something about the landscape at dusk. It can be loud with the riot of a colorful sunset or a quiet hush when skies are darkened. I wanted a quiet stillness for this painting.
