I first applied acrylic texture to the canvas and once dry I then layered on acrylic paint in deep fall colors, blockiing in the overall composition of the piece. The digital photograph of the trees is one that I took in early spring. I finished the piece with painted detail, a twig and wooden lettering. It is finished around the outer edges with painted cardboard, giving it added depth and interest. Sealed with acrylic varnish.
Artwork is on gallery wrapped canvas, wired and ready to hang.
