More swirling in my studio (Big Swirl #1) / by debbie rich

Next stage of one of the 36x48" canvases that I'm working on. This is the version that I painted the twisted tree first, and the swirly sky second.

Very labor-intensive because I had to stop the blue paint strokes when they intersected with the branches, then restart from a different angle and position. But I really like the results. The tree feels like it's active and kinda glowing.
