I have to do something about these titles. Semi-abstract tree. This is just a study of a portion of a future large painting I intend to paint ... eventually.
I am a fan of this French artist Alexandre Monestier. You can see his work here: http://www.atelier-monestier.sitew.com/. His father, Pascal Etchenic, is also a painter, and some of his work can be seen here: http://www.galeriedecannes.com/gallery/artist_detail.php?artisteID=3.
When I first started painting (and not knowing anything about working with oil paints), I made some attempts to mimic their style. It didn't work out very well. Trust me. However, I like this little semi-abstract tree. I intend to paint a large landscape or seascape with flattened out colors as Monestier paints.
I think I had to learn to "construct" before I learned how to "deconstruct".
