Forest Floor Kinglake

"Forest Floor Kinglake"
Best in Show Kinglake Art Show 2017
Best Landscape Kinglake Art Show 2017

In preparation for the Kinglake Art Show I took a trip to Kinglake, as I made the decision to paint a local scene for that exhibition.  It was a beautiful sunny, warm day and I ventured to the National Park.  When I stumbled across this scene I knew I had to paint it as I could see it as a finished painting and I could not wait to get started.  The silvery forest floor contrasted beautifully with the billowy golden native foliage.  Saplings swayed in the breeze, the light catching their silver leaves making them look like glitter against the dark bark on the background trees.  I am looking forward to painting it again in a landscape format.
