The Secret Forest Waterfall | Original Landscape Oil Painting
Oil on Birch + Frame options below
Original Size: 16 X 12 Inches
Approach: Alla Prima Impressionism
The original Forest Waterfall Oil Painting is inspired by one of the many hidden forest locations in PA. I have always felt that art has an amazing ability to take us to new and amazing locations, even if we can’t leave our home. And with this oil painting, I aimed to draw upon the wonderful balance of warm and cool color and light found in nature. The goal is to transport anyone out into the serenity of nature. With the constant demands of technology, we don’t always get to escape the robot world, but with this piece, you can do so any time it catches you gaze.
This place had so much peace and natural beauty that I knew I had to paint it. And now, I offer that painting to you. I trust you will find as much peace in it as we did.
The Secret Forest Waterfall | Original Oil Painting on Board
The original Forest Waterfall Oil Painting is inspired by one of the many hidden forest locations in PA. I have always felt that art has an amazing ability to take us to new and amazing locations, even if we can't leave our home. And with this oil painting, I wanted to focus on two areas. First, the glowing yellow light that flowed through the trees, dappling light onto the rocks and greenery below. And Second, the contrast of warm oranges and blues hidden around the scene. The end result is a piece that takes me out of my cold winter environment and into the wonder of nature anytime it catches my gaze.
The Secret Forest Waterfall Original was painted in an impressionist style, utilizing the Alla Prima, Plein Air technique. Meaning, painted all at once, out in the wilderness where the location now sits. Also, Andrew utilizes the wet on wet technique, balancing thick over thin layers of paint. So, the result is a multi-layered impressionist piece that perfectly captures the many layers of depth throughout the foliage and shallow stream.
