The Foret de Sivens in the Tarn [81] department is one of the two oldest unspoiled forests in France.

Trees are near impossible to paint in detail so my question was how to effectively paint the emotions, the aura, the ambience of trees?

What would happen if I decided to paint a series in the forest of Sivens, each study exploring different aspects of tree painting?

I took a large risk investing much time, prepared to learn and fail, the results are astonishing, highly individual.
