Tuscany Tree Painting, Acrylic Palette Knife Painting ,Daily painting, Oil and Acrylic Painting by Chris Hobel
Cypress Trees lining the road to a typical Italian villa took my eye on an afternoon walk back in May 2008 .I just had to paint it. It measures 8x10 inches and Ive used only a palette knife and artists quality acrylics on loose heavy canvas which Ive stapled onto a frame inorder to paint it. This allows the buyer a choice as to how they would frame it.The painting will be removed from the stretcher bars and has a wide border of canvas around the edge. This is a great way to save space and also makes freight inexpensive saving money for the seller and buyer
The buyer can choose the best frame for their needs using the money they save on freight costs.
The inspiration came from a photo I took around San Gimignano in Italy. Another cloudy day but I liked the atmosphere it created. A beautiful villa is hidden among the trees at the end of the road
Please comment..............If you would like me to post a step by step for this one
