Tree Surgeon Painting

The scan isn’t doing this piece justice, the nuance is a little lost. However, I was pleased with the masking fluid working in my favour again.

The subject is a friend of mine who works as a tree surgeon, who posts really cool pictures online of his enviable vocation. I wanted a feeling of movement and wilderness, as I think that sums up his work.

Hope you like it Alex! I love painting trees.

Experimenting with Masking Fluid

Enjoying playing with masking fluid lately. The texture is really refreshing in this medium. Here’s a couple of closeups:

I wanted a moody, fantasy world feel. Like a creature from Magic: The Gathering might appear from the trees. I think I’ll do some more like this. Maybe not whole compositions or ‘scenes’ but the texture and the feel.
