A red tree

This is a painting I have been working for a while now. It may look simple.. but creating this was a bit challenging for me.. especially since I have not really tried acrylic painting before.. for that matter any sorta painting in the past 10 years maybe. The last I touched a brush and paint was back during my school days. *sigh* I always wanted to learn to paint but never got the time to. So here is my first attempt.

Before I share this with you I want you guys to know that I do not want to take any credit for the idea behind this painting. It was inspired a painting by the artist, Tim Gangon. I have been following his works for a while now. I love his lovely mystical forest paintings and am an ardent fan of his works. Do check him out if any of you guys are interested in paintings as I am.



I know its no where close to te original creation but I hope you guys like my version of it.
