young vines


This is one of my first paintings with a knife. I see now that I can't crop worth a crap. Also, I need to get better at matching digital image with original. Its very close, just not as vivid.

Looks good, certainly for a not so experienced knife painter. Like the textures, the bits of colour. And you managed to keep the colours and shapes clean.
Looks a bit lonely though ;-)

bart- you are kind of right about the lonely aspect. Sad but true.

Thanks for the compliments and for visiting all the way from Denmark.

Hi Argos!
Where does this path lead to?

I hadnt payed much attention to this painting in my previous visits, even though i like "paths" so much...

If one day i live in the country side (in brasil or...who knows?), there will be an entrance with a brasilian tree called (well, i have to stop writing to phone my friend and ask for the name of the tree cause i had forgotten ...ahaha) a tree called FLAMBOYANT. Actually, i dont know if its brasilian, but there is a lot of flamboyants in Campinas. This tree has a red flower. Do you know it?

I have just gone check about its origin. It came from Africa.
Wow, how funny, at the following link there is a path with flamboyant (in the city, though)... its a pic taken in 1975 - the year i was born...ahaha

Look:
