Banyan Tree and Reflections 2

Banyan Tree and Reflections

Acrylic and Ink on Brown Paper, 27 x 19.5 cm, 14-16/6/16

This piece is a more detailed view of the magical Banyan Tree with it’s roots and vines dipping into the water. It was also painted from Room 3149 of the Grand Hyatt, Nusa Dua over three days. It was originally started as an Ink drawing, but as it developed I decided to add colour to it using thinned Acrylic Paint to give it more depth. I slowly built it up with thin layers of paint applied over the original Ink drawing. I like the effects of using Ink and Acrylic Paint together and enjoy experimenting with mixing the mediums.
