In my painting, Trees by Water, I wanted to paint a loose, expressive landscape. My readers are familiar with my figure paintings but I also paint landscapes and seascapes. To change my landscape style, I used a thick brushstroke. The local color of the trees and rocks are a red white. The hue contrasts with the blue of the ocean, sky and green background. Warm colors advance; cooler colors recede. The foreground has more detail than the background. My composition followed the rule of thirds.
