Owning an Art Gallery, I have to look at a huge amount of varied work everyday.

However this piece really caught my eye for its sensitive composition and use of colour. The ease of tone and structure is quite impressive.

I love the originality of the drawing. The tree design flows beautifully through the painting.

The clarity of the colours shine through the drawing.
The autumnal browns and golds work very well with the greens and blues and the use of reds makes the painting really glow.
The skilled use of watercolour is very high. Watercolour paint is one of the hardest mediums to grasp but it has been expertly worked into this image.

The whole execution of this painting has a stunning impact which is bold yet tender.

I really love this painting and would happily hang it in my gallery.
What do you think?

big thanks. I wondered about leaving a border around the tree, but decided it suited the overgrown feel to have it cropped. Maybe that's my view on life ;)
