Beautiful painting

Love this.

Love this. Colours are fabulous. Great texture.

Yes! This is magical in every way Shaun. An excellent representation with an amazing colour spectrum.

Fabulous colours. The whole painting has a magical glow to it.

Lovely painting with colour beauty and strength.

You always manage to hit the right spot, Shaun, superb colours great contrasts and spacial awareness, love this!

That background blue is magical Shaun and the tree markings are so full of energy and light. A truly beautiful painting. The oil pastels seem to work very well, not an easily manageable medium.

Amazing colours Shaun, great work.

Shaun…..this is breathtaking. I want to stand in front of your tree and drink in the magic. That patch of light at the base and the deepness of the shadows is quite powerful to the senses. So beautiful.

Many thanks for all your supportive comments - really encouraging.

Fabulous colours Shaun, really beautiful.

Many Thanks Carole.

Thank you Leslie

This tree is part of my evening walk here in Cyprus and have been meaning to paint it for some time but the light effect a couple of evenings ago couldn’t be resisted!! I under painted with loose thinned acrylic the added oil pastels to complete. It’s strange because I have only started to use oil pastels more because of the extreme heat here at the moment and acrylic paint solidifies so quickly. I am enjoying the employing this style of colour and use of marks.

About the Artist
Shaun Byatt

I try to achieve vibrant colours in my paintings. I work intuitively with large flat brushes - I also try not to overwork my pictures and they are often completed in two sittings. I use good quality acrylics because of their excellent pigment content. I like to interpret what i see in front of me…
