Well, I had a 'field day' with simply joyous color! While I have used a rather strange color to paint the trees, at that time of day, in that setting, I actually did see BLUE on the tree bark! Seriously. I have to admit that I seem to see 'blue' quite readily on surfaces where some people do not (discovered when they comment, "Where did you get the idea for blue?") Certainly I've exaggerated the degree of blue that I see in the shadows on the trees, but from my perspective it isn't pure fiction, either! I've used a moderate to thick impasto in this painting. As noted in my profile, I can paint similar, original reproductions of this or any of my artworks shown on this site.
