Midnight Picnic

Its Good Friday, so I'd like to wish you all a Happy Easter.

I'd also like to show you a little painting I did, an exercise in negative painting and dry brush work.
There is no drawing to this painting, the trees are brought forward by painting the spaces between them.
The dry brush work is paint loaded on a slightly damp brush and then dragged over the surface of the paper, to give a textured look.

Here is its ---  Midnight Picnic.
