I've been itching to use a large 24"x30" canvas with a failed sketch idea on it and wanted something to hang in my bedroom that would be calming and meaningful. I opted to paint my own rendition of a tree of life, all gnarled, with many branches and it's rootwork visible below the ground.
This is my first go at a large scale acrylic painting in almost 10 years, so I thought I would share my progress here with all of you. I'd say I'm not even a 3rd of the way done. I want to blend more blues into the sky, I'm only about 1/4 of the way done with the bark work and then there's that pesky underground, which I'm unsure how I'll tackle. All black? Black and dark brown? Mottled black around the edges fading to grey towards the center?
Any and all thought and ideas are welcome.
