Painting: chihuahua in a purple forest

It’s been a while since I’ve painted. Felt good to dab paint on canvas again. 

I was inspired by a photo of a red forest on facebook but wanted to paint in purple.

Here’s my process…painting on 2 canvases laid out portrait style.

Red, yellow, and black to create brown trees

Black to create shadows

Red, pearlescent blue, and pearlescent white to create the ground cover.

Purple and black for leaves

Added yellow and orange to trunk of the closest tree

Added pearlescent blue and green to the trees in the back, red on the closest tree. Shadows of trees.

What they look like as separate pieces
